"In Andhra they call this upma 'Bombay rava' upma. It is extremely soft and spongy in texture. When I was a kid, I loved eating this upma as balls rolled in sugar. This upma makes an excellent accompaniment to pesarattu."

Yummy. I love eating this for breakfast. I use about 3/4 teaspoon of salt and roasted rava. (You can buy roasted rava or dry roast it yourself.)
This recipe churns out the best Upma I have ever had! Thank you very much - Excellente!!
Just delicious! I omitted the tomato for breakfast, it's a bit too acid for me.
This is a delicious and unusual way to prepare semolina. I don't enjoy boiled semolina, but I liked this recipe. This makes very good breakfast. Thanks!
This is like cream of wheat on steroids! Big, savory flavors, and the heat is softened by the sooji! The leftovers were even better, as the lentils and seeds were less crunchy. Definitely a repeater.
Great recipe. Tastes like how my mom makes it. I left out the lemon juice and ghee, but still tastes great!
