Shweta writes about Seviyan Upma Recipe:
“Now, seviyan upma is one of my quick fix recipes. The day I am in a hurry and want to make something healthy and nutritious for Shantanu, it works out the best for me. Seviyan are made from either rice or wheat. The cooking technique varies because in case of rice seviyan, you have to cook the seviyan first and then add to your sautéed veggies. I use wheat seviyan of either Bambino or MTR, so I have to sauté it with the veggies before I add water. I once tried to boil my wheat seviyan, but it ended up being a little sticky. This could be because of the gluten in the wheat seviyan.
In this seviyan upma recipe, you can use just about any vegetable you like. But,remember to chop it well as seviyan cook quickly, and in case you make chunks of your veggies,they wont cook well. In case, you want to use vegetables like brocolli, cauliflower, beans, corn, carrots and peas, you can parboil it in little salted water before you add it to your upma. When it comes to spices, increase or decrease as per your child’s requirement. Curry leaves have a cooling effect on the body. Apart from adding flavor, it secretes digestive juices in your body which help in digestion.”
