Rava Upma is a popular and easy-to-make South Indian breakfast dish. It's made from rava or semolina, which is stir-fried with mustard seeds, urad dal, chana dal, curry leaves, onions and green chili before being boiled and cooked in a savory and flavorful broth. The dish is low in fat and calories, making it a healthy start to the day. For every cup of rava, usually 2-2.5 cups of water is used to achieve a light and fluffy consistency.

Dry roast the rava until it becomes golden brown and keep it aside.
In a pan, heat some oil and add mustard seeds, urad dal, chana dal, curry leaves, green chili and onion. Stir-fry until the onion becomes translucent.
Add water and salt and let it come to a boil.
Lower the heat and slowly add the rava into the water while stirring constantly to avoid lumps.
Cover and cook on low heat until the water is completely absorbed and the rava is cooked well.
Serve it hot with some coconut chutney or sambar.
