My Notes:

  • Pressure cooking method is easy especially for wheat rava.
  • Adding mint leaves is purely optional but does give a nice flavour to the bland upma.
  • You can also temper chana dal instead of urad dal.
  • If you prefer you can add vegetables of your choice to make it more filling and colorful too :)
