Shred it and keep it aside.

In a pan add oil , once warm add cumin seeds, mustard seeds, green chili and curry leaves , saute it for about 2 mins.

Add water and milk mixture along with turmeric powder, mix it well and cook for about 10-15 mins on a low flame.

  1. Dear Friend,

    Made this evening snack. I am a big lover of corns, being it in any form. Very simple and delicious upma. but I dint understand the purpose of sugar in it, as corn basically has natural sweetness.

    Anyways love it.


  2. Hi Ankur,

    I'm glad your tried this,I Added little sugar just to make it more sweet, but it can be optional.
