Jowar rava i used was not the fine quality, hence the cooking time may varies. Obviously this medium sized Jowar rava may takes bit time to cook hence i opted for pressure cooker. Actually i cooked this jowar rava upma in my pressure cooker which turned out this upma more quicker and easier than the usual way of making upma. To bring the colour and bit tanginess to this simple upma, i couldnt stop myself adding some tomatoes. Hence i named this dish as Jowar rava Tomato upma. When served with a spicy chutney or side dish, trust me one can finish his breakfast without any complaint. One of the best way to sneak this broken sorghum in your diet. Excellent breakfast dish to enjoy and to pack in anyone’s lunchbox as this dish is seriously wholesome and healthy definitely.
