Servings 3


  • 1 cup Sooji
  • 1 Capsicum chopped
  • 1/4 cup Green Peas
  • 1-2 tsp Salt or as per taste
  • 2 Spring Onion with greens, chopped
  • 1/2 leaves Coriander for chutney
  • 1/4 leaves Mint
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 2 Green Chillies
  • 1 tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds

For Tempering

  • 2 tsp oil
  • 2 slit Green Chillies
  • 8-10 Cashews fried
  • 1/2 Mustard Seeds tsp
  • 1/2 cup Coriander for garnish


  • Firstly, prepare the chutney. Take a mixer jar and add all the ingredients for the chutney.
  • Blend them nicely, adding a little water as needed, until smooth. Then, set the chutney aside.
  • Now, take a pan and add a little oil. Add the sooji and roast it until it turns a light whitish color. Remove the roasted sooji from the pan.
  • At the same time, in another pan, add double the quantity of water and put it on the flame to heat.
  • Now, in the same pan, add oil and mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds start to pop, add the spring onions and sauté them.
  • Then, add peas and capsicum. Next, add the roasted sooji mixture and a little salt. Mix everything nicely.
  • Now, add the prepared chutney and hot boiling water to the pan, and mix everything nicely. Taste and adjust the seasoning to balance the flavors.
  • Now, set the upma in silicone muffin cups. Pour the hot upma mixture into the cups and press it down with a spoon. Leave it for 10 minutes to set.
  • Once the upma has set, remove it from the muffin cups and place it on a tray.

For Tempering

  • Take a small pan and add oil. Add mustard seeds, green chilies, and cashews. Sauté them briefly, then pour this tempering over the set upma. Decorate with fried cashews and chopped coriander leaves.
