This is my post after a long time as my baby girl has become super active and I couldn’t take pictures of the recipes. However I made this simple and healthy recipe for breakfast and managed to update it here. I promise myself to update the blog managing her ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ (lets see).

Aval upma is very quick recipe that can be prepared in two minutes and hence a great recipe for bachelors and working woman.

  • Onion – 1
  • Tomato – 1
  • Cumin seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 1/3 tsp
  • Chilli powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Ginger powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Oil – 1 tsp
  • Salt – as required



1.Chop onion and tomato. Wash and soak aval in water (just enough to immerse it) ย for a minute.

2.Heat oil in a kadai, add mustard and Cumin seeds. When they splutter add onion.
