Rava Upma | Kara bath | Sooji upma

Rava Upma
Sooji is prepared from durum wheat. Rava upma alias vella rava upma is prepared from sooji. It is one of the easiest breakfast that can be prepared within 15 mins. Rava upma is also known as Kara bath in Karnataka. Usually tomatoes are not added in this rava upma, but my mom adds tomatoes and it adds a little sour to the upma and it can be consumed withhout any side dish. It tastes good with pickle and curd or coconut chutney. Please check below for step by step instructions and pictures for preparing South Indian Rava upma | Kara bath.
