Khara Bhath

Khara Bath is nothing but Upittu with a gorgeous name. I got tempted to make it the way Pratibha made after she flaunted her awesome clicks. Basically anything with too much oil or ghee gets a 'no' ticket at home. But, I was heads over heels to make this... 

                                                            (Aditya @17 months)

Here is the outcome ..

It was delicious. Akash and Nita (our helper), who dislike upittu, took two servings!


Vegetables cut into very small pieces : Carrot, french beans, brinjal, onions
I added a half a handful of peas too.
Green Chillies, cut length wise:  6 (depending on the spice levels of chillies)
Ginger-Garlic Paste: 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder: 1tsp

Semolina/Rava : 1 cup (250ml) (roast rava till fragrant, before you use it for upma)
Ghee : 4 tbsp (You can add more if u wish, this is the highlight of the dish which makes it a winner)

lemon juice : 1tbsp; coriander leaves chopped: 2tbsp and grated coconut : 2tbsp

Seasoning Ingredients : Mustard, Cashewnuts (handfull), chanadal (1tsp), uriddal(1tsp),curry leaves (few)

1. Heat ghee in a pan. Add cashew nut,chanadal, uriddal and fry till golden. Add curryleaves, greenchillies and fry for 30 sec.
2. Add onions, fry for 30 secs, and ginger garlic paster.
3.Add vegetables and fry till they are soft. Add little salt to aid quick cooking
4.Add 2.5 cups of water (use same cup to measure rava and water) and bring it to boil. Add salt. Mix well and lower the flame. Taste water and check salt levels. If required, add and adjust the taste. Add garam masala powder. Switch off the stove. Slowly add rava with constant stirring. After all rava has been added, switch on the stove again. Cover and cook for next 3-4 mins. Switch off the stove.
5. After 10 mins, add lemon juice and mix well. Sprinkle few coriander leaves and coconut when you serve.
