Kitchen Masti Points

  1. You can also add any other oil or Ghee instead of coconut oil
  2. Some people eat this upma along with curds also. It is a different combination. Try it out if you like.
  3. Adding little Garam Masala spices to the rava ( semolina) mix would make rava upma , a masala upma.
  4. In this recipe I have not added tomato since nobody prefers it in my house, but I have seen people who include tomato as an ingredient as well.
  5. In my opinion, the best combination along with Rava upma is coconut chutney and filter coffee
  6. In restaurants, probably you would have heard about a dish called Chow Chow Bath. It is nothing but a combination of Rava Upma and Rava Kesari Bath
