Heat 1 tbsp ghee in a thick-bottomed saucepan. After melting the ghee, add the Rava and fry for a few minutes. (The rava will turn light brown in 3-4 minutes.) Throughout this time, keep stirring the semolina with a spoon. Remove the roasted semolina to a plate.)
Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a pan over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the mustard seeds.
When the mustard begins to crackle, add the asafoetida, curry leaves, urad dal, and chana dal and fry everything together.
Fry them until the dal turns a light brown colour. After that, stir in the chopped onion, green chilli, and grated ginger. Fry the onion until it becomes light pink.
Put in the chopped carrots, peas, capsicum, and tomatoes and allow to cook.
Cook these ingredients for 2-3 minutes, then add one and a half cups of water and bring to a boil.
When the water begins to boil, add the roasted semolina and squeeze half a lemon over it. With a spoon, thoroughly combine the semolina and cook for 2 minutes while stirring.
After that, cover the pan and cook the Rava Upma for 3 to 4 minutes on low heat.
Throughout this time, keep stirring the upma with a spoon. Turn off the heat and leave the upma like this for 10 minutes to allow it to set. Your delicious Rava upma is ready. Serve with green coriander leaves as a garnish for breakfast.
