How to make Sundaikkai Godumai Rava Upma Recipe

  1. To begin making the Sundaikkai Godumai Rava Upma Recipe, heat a pressure cooker on medium flame, add oil, mustard seeds and allow the them to splutter, then add hing, peanuts, bengal gram, methi seeds, cumin seeds and let them sizzle. 

  2. Once it sizzles, add the dry red chilies, ginger and curry leaves. Once the curry leaves crackle, add turkey berries or sundaikkai and fry until they are cooked but at the same time a bit crunchy. This will take about a minute and half. 

  3. Add 2 cups of water, turmeric powder and salt. Allow it to boil.

  4. When it starts to boil, add the broken wheat slowly and stir it for 1 minute so that no lumps are formed.

  5. Close the pressure cooker and allow it to give 3 whistles.

  6. Switch off the flame and open the cooker only once the pressure releases naturally. Mix them once and garnish with coriander leaves.
