A classmate in college once referred to upma as 'concrete'. I was hurt. Very, very hurt. How could she insult one of the most delicious assortments of vegetarian ingredients that is so dear to me?! And then I looked into her box and saw lumps of what can only be termed as 'concrete'. Sigh! Her mom had made a boo boo out of all those beautiful ingredients given to her. Rava, vegetables, spices.... all sticking together, looking like broken pieces of cinder blocks, waiting to be hurled at an unsuspecting bystander in a surprise food fight. 'An uprising of the college canteen folk' -- I would call that episode. Anyway, mine's really delicious, healthy, nutritious, grainy and light. You'll know it when you repeat and relish. And when you do, don't forget to: A) Say a prayer for the less fortunate & B) Log back in and leave your lovely feedback. It's encouraging, you know! Here's a quick look at the ingredients: Bansi Rava - 2 cups (400 grams) Ghee - 2 tsp. Potatoes - 3 (small) Tomatoes - 2 (small) Cabbage - 1/4 cup Onions - 2 medium sized Green chillies - 4 Curry leaves - 12-15 Coriander leaves - fistful Oil - 3 tbsp. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp.
