Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

This a quick healthy breakfast/dinner recipe prepared from raghi vermicelli. I used Anil raghi vermicelli for making this semiya upma. I have posted both the sweet and savoury versions of the upma. Finger Millet (Kezhvaraku) is a great source of iron. The fiber content of the raghi helps manage cholesterol problems. So this is a great recipe for all age group. Fortunately, kids just love the sweeter version. So why don’t you give it a try and enjoy the satisfaction of preparing some healthy recipe for your family? Leave your comments and query below.

Prep Time: 5 Mins
Cook Time: 15 to 20 Mins
Serves: 2
Recipe Category: Breakfast/Dinner

 Ragi semiya (Anil) – 250 gm packet
Onion – 1
Green chili – 4
Salt – As needed

To temper:
Oil – 1 tsp
Mustard – 3/4 tsp
Urad Dal – 1 tsp
Chana dal – 2 tsp
Curry leaves – 1 sprig

Method :
Ragi Semiya Upma :
  • Add some salt in water and soak the raghi vermicelli in water for 3 to 5 minutes and drain it completely.
  • Using an idli pot cook the raghi vermicelli for 6 to 8 minutes. Once it is soft enough and cooked, fluff the raghi and keep aside in a separate vessel.
  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a kadai and temper with the items mentioned under “To Temper” and later add the green chillies and onions. Saute till the onion turns translucent.
  • Now add the cooked ragi semiya in the same pan and mix well.




Ragi Semiya Sweet Version :
  • Add shredded coconut, sugar and cardamom(optional) to the cooked ragi semiya and mix well.

Tip :

  • Do not soak the ragi more than five minutes because raghi will start to dissolve.
  • Mix the cooked ragi with tempering as soon as possible, delaying makes the ragi dry and hard.
