Upma(s) s one of the handy and saver tiffin variety for anytime of the day. SH loves em but implty wit more veggies.. at times in a hurry i don't find time to add veggies to my upma and jus make plain ones. This one made me to make some Instant Rava upma mix and freeze / refrigerate (depends on ur refrigerate condition.. mine def needs to be sent to freezer) for emergency use. 

With instant mix .. upma can be made in less then 5 mins. Boil 2.25 cups to 3 cups water to 1 cup mixture add salt and upma is ready!!
What you need: Inspired from Meethi life
2 cups - Roasted Sooji 
1 cup - Mixed veggies (carrot, beans, peppers n green peas)
1 tsp - Grated ginger
2 no - Green chillies, chopped
1 tsp - Mustard Seeds
2 tsp - Channa Dhal
2 tsp - Uradh dhal
1 sprig - Curry Leaves
Oil - 1 tsp
Asafoetida / Hing - 1/4 tsp
Salt as reqd 

How to make:
Heat oil in a pan add musard once it splutters, add uradh dhal, channa dhal, hing, curry leaves and saute till golden in coor. 

Add green chillies, ginger, veggies and cook for 1 min,

Now add rava / sooji mix well and transfer to a broad tray / plate to cool.

Once cooled down transfer to air tight box and freeze it.

Whenever you need upma boil 2.25 cups water to 1 cup instant upma mix add salt and serve hot, garnish with coriander leaves n lime juice.

Serve hot wit coconut chutney n sambar!!

Note: This keeps well for 2 - 3 weeks (totally depends upon the refrigerators power)
