Lapsi Upma

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30-45 minutes
Serves: 2


  • Lapsi (Broken wheat/Samba Godhumai) - 1/2 cup
  • Onion - 1 medium (chopped)
  • Vegetables of choice - 1/4 cup (chopped)
  • Green Chili - 1
  • Garlic - 2 cloves
  • Ginger - 1" piece (julienned)
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Sambhar Powder - 1 tsp
  • Grated coconut - 2-3 tbsp
  • Salt - as per taste

For Tempering

  • Ghee - 2-3 tbsp
  • Dry red chili - 2 (broken)
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Asafoetida - a pinch
  • Curry leaves - few


  1. Cook the lapsi separately in the pressure cooker with 1 cup water for 1 whistle. It should not become mushy.
  2. Coarsely grind the green chilli, ginger and garlic cloves and keep aside. You can also chop it finely.
  3. Heat the ghee in a kadai, add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, asafetida, broken red chilly and curry leaves.
  4. Next add the chopped onions and saute till it is soft.
  5. Add the groud mix and saute for few minutes.
  6. Now add the chopped vegetables, salt, turmeric powder and sambhar powder. Saute the same till the it is cooked. You can use any vegetables like carrot, beans, green peas etc. I have used pumpkin flower buds to make this upma today. If you have some leftover sabzi, you can add it directly too.
  7. Add the cooked dalia in it and mix well.Check the salt and add more if required.
  8. Switch off and garnish with coriander leaves and fresh grated coconut.

Serving Suggestion

  • Serve the hot lapsi upma with papad or chutney or pickle. I had it with manga inchi chutney.
