Upma made with semolina is one of the most famous breakfast dishes in India. We have tweaked the traditional recipe slightly, by cooking the roasted rava in a mixture of curds and water instead of just water.
This gives a nice consistency and pleasant, rustic tang to the upma. This, in fact, used to be one of the traditional secrets of cooking upma in Tamil Nadu, and many grandmas used to add a cup of buttermilk or a little curds to the upma, claiming that it would taste better and also digest more easily.
Serve the Curd Upma hot and fresh with chutney and sambhar or just a little powdered jaggery!
