  4. 4. Hing – a pinch
  5. 5. Curry leaves – a spring

Note
  1. * 1 cup = 235 ml
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a pan add mustard seeds, after it splutters add urad dal and channa dal, when it turns golden brown add curry leaves, sliced onion and green chilli. Saute well.
  2. When onions look sauteed add 2 cups water and salt. Mix well and allow it to boil well. When the water is boiling well add cornmeal/ broken corn to it and mix well. Cover the mixture with lid and cook in low to medium flame for 20 minutes stirring it gradually. My cornmeal was just like wheat rava/ cracked wheat texture so it took 20 minutes to cook , if your cornmeal looks fine like sooji the cooking might vary. So alter the water and cooking time according to your cornmeal texture.
  3. After 20 minutes when all the water us drained and when cornmeal looks cooked switch off the flame. If your cornmeal is not cooked sprinkle some water and cook for some more time with lid on. Initially the upma will look like sooji upma after some time you can see granules of cornmeal making it look dry and appetizing. Serve the upma with any pickle of your choice.
