Corn Upma

Adding sweet corn and milk  gives a delicious flavour to our regular upma.. Will be loved by kids also.

Ingredients :
1 cup boiled sweet corn
1 cup semolina
1/2 cup chopped onion
3 tbspns oil
1/2 tspn cumin seeds (Jeera)
1/2 tspn mustard seeds
1/4 tspn asafoetida (Hing)
5-6 curry leaves
2 green chillies
1 cup water
1 cup boiled milk
3-4 tspns Sugar
Salt to taste

For Garnishing :
Chopped corriander
OR Sev and corriander
OR Combination of grated coconut and chopped corriander
OR Grated processed cheese

Preparation :
Roast semolina in a pan on medium heat till it changes colour
Simultaneously mix milk and water and keep it for heating

To make Upma :
Take oil in a pan
Add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, hing, curry leaves and green chillies
Saute it for few seconds
Add onion to the tempering
Cook onion till it turns pink and transparent
Then add boiled corn to it.
At this stage add sugar and salt to the mixture
Then add semolina and saute it for few minutes
Add milk and water to the mixture
Cover the pan with a lid for 5-8 minutes
Check if the semolina is cooked
Transfer it in serving bowl
Garnish with chopped corriander

Notes :
Approx 3 corn cobs will yield 1 and 1/2 medium sized katoris
You may add 1 tspn of ghee when the upma is ready to serve. This gives nice aroma to it.
