This is a very easy and quick breakfast that will be ready in a few minutes. This tasted just like Poha Upma and is equally delicious.


Number of serving: 2
Rice Krispies Cereal 6 cups

Tomato 1 medium

Onion 1 small

Green Peas ¼ cup

Green Chilies - 3 or 4

Curry Leaves A few

Turmeric A pinch

Lemon Juice 1 teaspoon

Salt as required

For Seasoning/Tempering:

½ teaspoon Mustard Seeds

¼ teaspoon Cumin Seeds

½ teaspoon Bengal Gram (Pachi Senaga Pappu, Chana Dal)

½ teaspoon Black Gram (Minapappu, Urad Dal)

A few Cashews (Optional)

2 teaspoons Oil


  • Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add cumin seeds + chana dal + urad dal + cashews and fry till the dals turn golden brown.
  • Then add onions + tomatoes + chilies + curry leaves and fry well until onions become thin and cooked. Add very little water to cook the onions faster.
  • When all the water gets absorbed and onions become soft add rice crispies and mix well. Add turmeric and salt to the mixture and mix well. Also add lemon juice and mix well.
  • Sprinkle some water (approx. ¼ cup) on top and let the rice crispies become soft and absorb the essence of the contents.
  • Cover and leave it on low flame for some time and turn off the flame. Mix well and enjoy the steaming hot upma. It tastes so good.
