If you ask a South Indian for an easy breakfast, trust me most of us will definitely talk about the popular upma. Yes this breakfast dish is quite an easiest one to prepare, usually prepared with semolina, you can dish out this quick and easy upma with any sort of broken grains aka rava. Nowadays you can find out varieties of broken grains like wheat, ragi,millets, sorghum, barley etc. Recently i got a packet of broken jowar from Indian stores, after making a simple dish out this jowar rava, i was looking for a chance to finish them. Am running this week’s blogging marathon with Easy breakfast dishes as theme, obviously i couldnt think more than dishing out one of the popular and most hated South Indian breakfast aka upma. Jowar rava works awesome to make this delicious and vegan upma. However if you want to bring more flavour to this healthy upma, you can drizzle a teaspoon of ghee once the dish is ready to serve.

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.
