    Wash and clean tomatoes. Chop the tomatoes and keep them aside. Peel the onion and chop it finely. Wash, clean and make a coarse paste of green chilies and ginger. Chop curry leaves and keep them aside.


    Heat a pan and add oil to it. When oil is hot add cashew nuts and fry till golden brown. Take out the fried cashew nuts from oil and add the fenugreek seeds and black gram. When the seeds change color then add mustard seeds and cumin seeds. Fry till the seeds splutter. Add chopped curry leaves and coarsely ground chili-ginger paste. Add turmeric powder and mix well. Now add chopped onions and fry till they become transparent. Add chopped tomatoes and little salt to cook them. Mix well and cook covered till the tomatoes are soft. Mash the mixture with the spoon and add water.  Add remaining salt and allow the mixture to boil. When the mixture is boiling add ghee. Lower the flame. Now add semolina little by little and mix with a ladle. Add some semolina, mix and then add some more semolina and mix. This way finish off the semolina and mix well. By now the mixture will be a watery mixture. Cover and cook for few minutes. Open the lid and mix once again. Add some fried cashew nuts and mix. Transfer this tasty Tomato Upma to individual plates and serve garnished with the remaining fried cashew nuts.

    Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Saisri Kiran Garu,

    Thanks for your feedback

    Recipes which I have prepared at home, enjoyed with my family, found worthwhile to share with my viewers and the ones perfected only find a place on my website. Hence my pace would be slow. Keep tuned to my website and I hope it wouldn't disappoint you.
