Carrot Upma

Sunday mornings are a bit chilled out in our home. Sleeping a little more than usual, relaxed tea session and then a healthy breakfast is our usual routine.

Upma is a very common breakfast item all over the country and, thus, is on my list of breakfast items too. I make it at least once every week. As I have a little angel who is a little fussy about what she eats, I have to try new ideas to feed her healthy breakfast everyday. So, today I thought of making Upma loaded with grated Carrot.

So, go ahead and read how I made it.

Happy Sunday!

  • 1 Cup Roasted Rava/Semolina Using Roasted rava helps reduce cooking time.
  • 2 Cups Boiled water
  • 2 Tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 Tsp Mustard Seeds (Rai/Sarson)
  • 1 Tsp Urad Dal (Split black lentils)
  • 2 Green chillies Cut them as you like. I cut it into pieces
  • 4-5 Curry Leaves (Kadipatta)
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1 Tsp Sugar Optional
  • 1 Grated Carrot You can add other vegetables of your choice - Chopped Onion, Boiled Green Peas, Boiled and chopped potatoes, etc.
  • 1 Tbsp Chopped Coriander For garnishing


  • Heat Oil in a pan and add Mustard seeds, Urad Dal, Green chillies and Curry leaves.
  • Let the Urad dal turn a little brown. Then add boiled water slowly. Be very careful in this step as the water may splutter causing injury.
  • Now add the grated Carrot and more than half of the grated Coriander. Leave little for garnishing 😉
