I just do not know why many people do not like upma and call it sarcastically as 'Concrete'! If the rawa is not roasted properly, no doubt, the upma will look like concrete :D In my opinion, if you roast rawa properly and add vegetables, you can prepare a 'superb' upma.
Anyways, leave it! Here is a different upma recipe which is prepared using bread pieces. It suits for breakfast as well as evening snacks. It won't take much time to prepare and never it will be a concrete!
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Bread slices (big) - 6
Green chilli - 3-4
Curry leaves - 1-2 strands
Chopped coriander leaves - 2 tsp
Oil - 2 1/2 tsp
Black gram - 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
Turmeric -1/4 tsp
Onion (small) - 1
Salt to taste
Sugar - 1/2 tsp
Lime juice - 1/2 tsp
Chop green chillies and onion. Make small bread pieces out of slices. Heat oil in a pan and add black gram, mustard seeds.
When Mustard seeds splutter, add turmeric powder, chopped green chillies and chopped onion and stir for a minute.
Now add bread pieces , salt, sugar, lime juice and sprinkle 1/4 cups of water and mix well.
Close the pan with a lid / plate and cook for 5 minutes.
Garnish with coriander leaves. It will be tastier if eaten hot!
