Jackfruit’s uppitu (upma)

Such a nice surprise! JF made breakfast today yesterday(didn’t get around to posting).

Uppittu comes from the words uppu (salt) and hittu (flour). JF likes to use the coarse rava and make it rather dry.

  • ghee (or oil, but I only like this with ghee)

    toasted rava

  • 1c sooji/rava toasted in a dry pan or with ghee, remove to a bowl
  • 1/2tsp mustard seeds
  • 1/2tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 stem of curry leaves
  • 4 slit green chilies
  • 1 small onion chopped finely
  • 1 lg or 2 sm potato finely chopped
  • 1 carrot finely chopped
  • salt
  • pinch of turmeric
  • 2c water
  • couple stems of coriander leaves chopped

Heat ghee in a pan and add the mustard seeds then cumin seeds. pop pop pop. Throw in the curry leaves, green chilies, then the onions. MMM does anything smell better than curry leaves and onions frying in ghee?

Once they are translucent, add the potatoes and carrots, salt and a pinch of turmeric.

Stir for a couple minutes then add water and cover. Bring to a boil until the vegs are cooked. Slowly stir in the rava so it doesnt form lumps. Pat it down in the pan and cover with lid. Keep it on low heat for around 5 mins.

Serve with pickle or yogurt or just like that.

*We forgot to add, but cashews give a nice crunch.
