Sooji Rava Upma How to Make Suji Rava Upma Recipe

Rava Upma RecipeSooji Rava Upma Recipe is one of the healthy vegetable breakfast recipes. Instead of making cereal or pasta recipes which have not many nutrient foods it an alternative recipe. We can simply make this recipe without any vegetables at no time or else add few vegetables like carrot, beans, and other veggies to make it nutritional.

Sooji or semolina rava is one of the versatile ingredients in our kitchen whether it is hot or sweet we can make many delicious recipes with different flavors. If we want to have it plain then we can garnish with sev to make it crispy or else we can serve with coconut chutney.

In order to save time and keep semolina insect free, we can roast and preserve it in an airtight container. It hardly takes 15 minutes if you have roasted sooji in hand. I have made a few more variants with sooji rava few of them are rava ladoo, ravva kesari, halwa puri, and Suji ka halwa.
