For office going people this mix can be very handy as you can add upma mix in an airtight container, add boiling water to it and put on the lid for 10 minutes. In morning when every minute is counting, these 10 minutes can be utilised in travelling or finishing up other morning chores.
This Instant Upma mix recipe is also helpful for bachelors or students who don’t know or don’t have time for cooking. You can even prepare this breakfast mix, pack it in an air-tight container and hand it over to your kids when they are heading towards hostel. I have lived in hostel for four years and such home made instant mixes used to be my saviour on most of the days. Those who have lived in hostels can totally understand how food cravings are a part of that life 😀 .
Preparing this Instant Rava Upma mix is really very easy. Just a handful of ingredients, little bit of cooking and your mix is ready. I have added Sun dried vegetables and onion powder but it is optional. You can still prepare your upma mix without them. I personally like to add them as we travel a lot and finding vegetarian food becomes a big hassle. With these sun dried vegetable at least you are are getting some nutrients or vitamins in your diet. The spices/dal can be adjusted as per one’s taste, especially when you are making it for children, feel free to omit red chilli powder or green chillies.
