Three Colored Breakfast Masala Upma
I’m back with another wholesome and quick breakfast recipe using MTR Breakfast Mixes.This time we are using ‘Masala Upma’ which is a savory semolina pudding made using ghee and is usually served for breakfast or snacks in Indian homes.
It’s easy to digest, filling and wholesome too. Traditionally, it’s made by sautéing semolina with ghee, seasoning and adding water.
Just cover with lid and cook for 15-20 minutes to get a thick savory pudding. But the key to a good upma is proper measurement and mixing, however, who has the time to do all that in morning or when you need a really quick snack?
Hence I got these MTR Breakfast Mixes, which are super easy to make (mostly ready in 2-3 minutes) and excellent to taste.
Ingredients for the Three Colored Breakfast Masala Upma
1 Packet MTR Masala Upma Mix
1/2 Cup Water
2 Tbsp Ghee – clarified butter
Few Drops Orange Food Color
Few Drops Green Food Color
5-6 Roasted Cashews
1 Lemon – chopped into quarter
1 Circular Cookie Cutter – or any shape cookie cutter
Many of you might already know that we are quickly approaching 15 August, which is Independence Day in India.
Every year, I celebrate this day by creating some of our favorite Indian recipes and one of those recipes does include ‘Three colors – (Saffron, White & Green), the colors that evoke a deep emotion of patriotism and affinity.
As they say ‘Absence Makes the Heart Grows Fonder’, well in my case it’s the distance which just makes me long for India, even more so on such special occasions.
So to celebrate this year’s India Independence Day, I’m creating this ‘Three Colored Breakfast Masala Upma (Savory Semolina Pudding)’, which can be made using the MTR Breakfast Mixes.
So, we no longer have to roast or measure any ingredient. Just boil some water, empty the entire packet content in it, add ghee (incase you are vegan, you can add coconut oil), cover cook for few minutes and you’re done.
The masala upma is ready in minutes and tastes smooth and yummy.
To impart them with the three colors, I’ve just divided the recipe into three equal parts and added 3 different food colors to them.
Then take any cookie cutter, place few spoons of green-colored upma on the bottom, then few spoons of white upma and finally top with saffron upma.
Decorate with nuts or few sprigs of fresh coriander and you are ready with a that can make you the star of your breakfast game 🙂
