I still remember the days when I used to get absolutely excited of a dish made of small balls :) And that excitement still persists in me. :)
Sago is rich in carbohydrates. Sago upma can really be a fulfilling breakfast.
Sago(nylon- fine) - 1 cup
Moong dhall - 1/3 cup
Green chillies - 3
Cashew - 5
Coconut(Scrapped) - 2 tbsp
Mustard - 1/2 tsp
Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
Bengal gram dhall - 1/2 tsp
Lemon extract - 2 tsp
Salt - for taste
Wash and soak sago in water for minimum of three hours. The water level should be half an inch above the sago.
Cook moong dhall so that it is soft and does not change form. See to that you dont over cook it.
In a pan heat 2 tbsp of oil and season with mustard, urad dhall, bengal gram dhall, cashew, curry leaves and green chillies. Now add the soaked sago and fry for few min, till the sago becomes transparent. Add cooked moong dhall, grated coconut, lemon extract and salt to it and mix well. See to that the sago does not become sticky. Sago upma is ready to serve. You can serve it hot with mango pickle or curd. :) Enjoy eating :)
