Day 3 Healthy Breakfast

Day 3
Its a sunny day, so I decided to take an early morning walk, in the park close by, along with my friend. We walked 2 miles, great to catch up ,chatting  and good exercise too ;))we stopped at a near by place for a cup of hot coffee (regular coffee no sugar and then headed back home.
At home I wanted to make some thing that wouldn't take time to prepare and yet nutritious. So I decided to prepare Upma . It's prepared with  Semolina flour. It is very light and easy to digest. You can make it more nutritious, by adding vegetables. I have used corn and capsicum , onions and tomatoes to prepare this Upma.

Ingredients:
1 cup coarse sooji
1 small onion diced small
2 to 3 green chillies finely chopped
1/2 cup ready frozen yellow corn
1/2 cup frozen green peas
1 medium tomato chopped finely 
3 to 4 curry leaves (available in Indian store)
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
oil
1 tsp salt 
1/4 tsp Hing (Asafetida)
1/2 cup water
1/2 bell pepper diced small
1/4 freshly chopped coriander 


Method:

1.Heat 2 tbsp vegetable oil in a kadai. Add 1/4 tsp mustard seeds, allow them to crackle.Next add in Hing, curry leaves (kadi patta).  Add in onions , stir and allow them to get little brown, add tomatoes and the veggies, add cashew pieces,lemon juice and next add in water.
2. As the water begins to boil, lower the heat and start adding in the semolina (sooji), keep stirring for about 3 to 4 minutes , till water evaporates and the sooji is cooked and garnish with freshly chopped coriander. Serve warm.
