  • Heat ghee in a big pan or a kadai.
  • Fry the semiya, till it becomes golden brown.
  • :- Otherwise, the upma will become sticky.
  • Remove the fried semiya onto a separate plate and allow it to cool.
  • Heat oil in the same pan.
  • Splutter mustard seeds and dry red chillies.
  • Add black gram and allow it to become brown.
  • Add the vegetables and fry for a few seconds.

    I thinks good comments should be on the taste the recipe gives and not on the grammer or presentation.I think the way it is written is readable and rest is on the reader how he/she is good at interpreting it.Prakriti the dish was good and thanks for the contribution.
