Hing Upma – FF 6

Published October 17, 2014 by Bingo's Mom

It’s a shame that I didn’t post recipe for upma under fast cooking.

My MIL taught this technique of keeping more sambar in the afternoon and prepare this (Recipe below) upma in 5 minutes for dinner and relish it with sambar. So, whenever we have a plan for going out in the evening during weekends, I prepare more sambar for lunch and prepare this for dinner.

Hing Upma:

Bombay Rava (Roasted) – 1 cup

Green chilly (chopped) – 2 (Adjust)

Curry leaves – 2 strings

Hing – 1 teaspoon

Salt – to taste

Oil – 1 tbs

Mustard seeds – 3/4 tsp

Urad dhal – 1 tsp


Heat a kadai, add oil. Once it’s hot, reduce the flame and add mustard, urad dhal and fry till golden brown. Add hing and after 5 seconds add curry leaves. Add 3 cups of water (I like upma in pongal consistency. You may reduce the water to 2 cups). Add salt. Once it starts boil, add rava slowly while mixing it with other hand. Mix continuously without stopping. Once it comes to your desire consistency, switch off and serve.


– Buy roasted rava. If you don’t get, roast in bulk and store.

– You may keep water in stove while you assemble other things and add water as mentioned in the recipe.

-If you are adding onion, better to avoid hing as they say we should not add onion and hing together.

One more recipe is here.
