Aval Upma

Hungry! want to prepare something quickly to eat ! try aval upma.. it is so easy to make. my MIL taught me this. I knew we can make aval payasam but not upma.. I am reposting this for  Shama's Fast food event series- Aval

Thick aval 4 cups
Onion- 2 sliced
Curry leaves
Turmeric powder ¼ tsp
Mustard seeds, Urad dhall for tempering

Soak aval in water for 15 minutes. Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. after it splutters add urad dhall let it get brown in color then add onion and curry leaves.saute it. Put turmeric powder and salt.
Strain the soaked aval. It should not contain any water. Then add it to the sauted onion.

Aval upma is ready to eat!

Hi Usha! Thanks for visiting me and your comment. I tried rava idly at home once and it came out too dense. I must try your tip of using milk.
BTW, your daughter is beautiful! Give her a hug from me. I have a 10 month old baby girl. They are such a joy, aren't they?

for rava idli use as much curd as possible.(use only little amount of water)
