Rice Krispies Upma

This is a very easy and quick breakfast that will be ready in a few minutes. This tasted just like Poha Upma and was equally delicious.

Ingredients: (For 2 persons)

  • Rice Krispies Cereal – 6 cups
  • Tomato – 1 medium
  • Onion – 1 small
  • Green Peas – ¼ cup
  • Green Chilies - 3 or 4
  • Curry Leaves – A few
  • Turmeric – A pinch
  • Lemon Juice – 1 tsp
  • Salt as required
For Seasoning/Tempering:

  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ tsp Bengal Gram (Pachi Senaga Pappu, Chana Dal)
  • ½ tsp Black Gram (Minapappu, Urad Dal)
  • A few Cashews (Optional)
  • 2 tsp Oil

Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add cumin seeds + chana dal + urad dal + cashews and fry till the dals turn golden brown.

Then add onions + tomatoes + chilies + curry leaves and fry well until onions become thin and cooked. Add very little water to cook the onions faster.

When all the water gets absorbed and onions become soft add rice crispies and mix well. Add turmeric and salt to the mixture and mix well. Also add lemon juice and mix well.

Sprinkle some water (approx. ¼ cup) on top and let the rice crispies become soft and absorb the essence of the contents.

Cover and leave it on low flame for some time and turn off the flame. Mix well and enjoy the steaming hot upma. It tastes so good. Yummy!!
