Sooji (Uppumavu)

An excellent dish for the break fast and a very easy one. It wont take more than 15 minutes to prepare uppumavu. Lets go with the ingredients:

Sooji(rava) - ¼ kg
Onion - 1 medium size
Tomato - 1 really small size
Green chilli - 1 medium size.
Curry leaves - 4-5 leaves
Salt - 1 tea spoon.
Coconut oil - 2 table spoon.
mustard seeds - 1 teaspoon.

Cut the onion into 2 halves and make slices. Similarly cut the tomato. Cut the green chilli into small sizes.
Heat the oil in a pan, add mustard seeds.
When seeds stops spluttering, add onion and curry leaves and stir well till the onions become transparent.
Add tomato and stir it till the tomato gets partially dissolved with the onion.
Add 4 cups of water.
Wait till the water becomes warm, add salt to it.
Add rava to it. Wait for 1 minute for the water to be absorbed by sooji.
Turn of the stove and have your uppumavu.
Tips :
you may have to add more water to rava. It should look like a paste with no water visible directly (just after adding rava).
vegetables like carrot can be added with the onion to make the uppumavu taste better.
