Microwave Upma Recipe: How to make Upma in Microwave, Upma Recipes

microwave upma recipe

I came across this Upma recipe in a booklet, I received with my microwave cooker. I tried some of the recipes, listed there and the results were good.

So i thought of trying upma recipe also from this book and as per my expectations the upma turned out to be very good. Now i have tried this upma recipe many times and it has never failed me. My hubby who is from north india has slowly become fond of upma now :-).  We usually have upma with tea and coconut chutney or sambar.

Making upma in microwave takes a little less time than making the upma in the traditional way. I have already posted the recipe for making upma in the usual way and here is its link: Upma – A South Indian Breakfast Recipe and also the vermicelli upma recipe.

      even once i made sheera with readymade roasted rawa normally and the sheera did not turn out well. so better to roast it more. i think they don’t roast the rawa well. its got nothing to do with microwave cooking.

      a tip i share with you. rava can also be roasted the rawa in the microwave. spread the rava in a microwave safe plate. microwave on high for some minutes till the rawa becomes fragrant. they will become exactly like the roasted rawa in a kadai.
