Corn Upma

Corn upma is a nice variation from regular rava upma with vegetables. Corn I used here is tinned American sweet corn which is readily available in the market. So, try it and who knows it becomes regular in your kitchen.
Recipe of corn upma
1 cup sooji (rava/semolina)
2 tbsp corn kernels (tinned)
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
2 tbsp oil
Salt to taste
Few curry leaves
2 tsp chane ki dal (Bengal gram dal)
3 green chillies- chopped
2 1/2 cups water
1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a kadhai and roast sooji on a low heat for 5 minutes till nice aroma comes out and
sooji turns very light brown. Take out sooji from kadhai and keep aside.
2. Heat remaining 1 tbsp oil in the kadhai and add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add chane ki dal.
Roast for few seconds.
3. Add curry leaves, green chillies and corn. Fry for 1 minute.
4. Add water and salt. Let it come to boil, then simmer on low heat, covered, for 5 minutes.
5. Slowly add sooji (little by little) mixing with other hand to avoid lumps.
6. Cover the kadhai and let all water gets absorbed. Your corn upma is ready. Serve hot.
