Vegitable Upma / Vegitable Uppittu

Vegetable Upma / Vegetable Uppittu is a popular breakfast dish in Bangalore of the Kannadigas. I am not aware of the traditional method but this is how I prepare, so that my daughter who is fussy eater of vegetables can eat all vegetables in this form. Its a good nutritious breakfast to start our day too...

1 Cup of Rava or Sooji (cream of wheat)
2 to 2 1/2 cup water
2 tablespoon of oil
1 tsp mustard seed
1 tsp cumin seed

1 tbsp Channa dal
