I know how much you all love a one pot meal so today I’m sharing this one pot cous cous with you ! Traditionally, Upma is a South Indian dish made from Sooji (Semolina) but since I don’t always have it on hand, I’ve found cous cous to be a great swap that is easily available at your local grocery store. Upma is usually very soft and slightly mushy in texture but this cous cous umma is a bit loose & graining with more defined pearls. Either way it’s how I get my upma fix in and its something I can easily meal prep, leave in the fridge and have for breakfast with chai, or as a side to any meal or just an easy to reheat lunch! It’s incredibly fast to make and one pot means very little dishes to clean!
How to Save Time:
- Use frozen mixed vegetables like carrots, peas, and green beans to cut down on the amount of chopping you have to do !
- If you want to use fresh veggies, you can chop them a day prior as well !
I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as we do and if you make it, be sure to tag me on @thechutneylife !
