Coconut Semolina / Kobbari Uppittu / Upma

Coconut Upma / Coconut Semolina

How many times are you bored to spent hours making dosa in the morning, or making chutney for idly and making it a detailed breakfast.

Today is one of those days, where I ran out of bread and NO Batter in the fridge to make dosas. I was looking to make something quick as I woke up late after a late Sunday night. (I know it is a bad planning) Sometimes its good to get lazy. :)

Yeah, this is a quicky and fortunately one of my husband's favourite breakfast too. So, here you go with this less than 10 min recipe. :)

Semolina - 1 cup (Pre-roasted)
Ginger - 1 inch Piece finely chopped
Green chillies - 2 nos (Finely chopped)
Coconut - 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Hot Water - 1 cup
Mustard seeds - 1 tspn
Channa dal - 1 tspn
Urad dal - 1 tspn
Salt as per your taste.
Ghee for garnishing (Optional)
Oil for tempering - 2 tspn

1) In a pan, add oil, and once hot, add mustard seeds.
2) Once they splutter, add channa dal and urad dal and fry them till they turn golden brown.
3) To this add Water and Milk together and add salt to taste
4) To this add ginger, coconut and bring it to a boil.
5) Add semolina slowing mixing it into the boiling water making sure there are no lumps formed.
6) Once done, close the lid on the pan and let it cook for 1 minute.
7) Now, open the lid and add ghee and close again and let it cook for another minute and turn off the stove.
8) Serve hot with chutney powder / Pickle / even chutney of your choice.
