It is an accepted fact that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Even then, many households struggle to rustle up a balanced or healthy breakfast. A common trend noticed among working families is that many either skip breakfast or grab something on the way to office due to their busy schedules.


Upma — a basic traditional Indian recipe — can come to your rescue. It’s delicious, super easy and nutritious, especially when you make it with kodon! Kodon is a rich source of protein, calcium and iron. The millet is gluten-free and is a popular ingredient consumed during fasting days. Millets are among the indigenous crops that have become popular according to the Godrej Food Trends Report.


Kodon flour 1 cup
Black cumin seeds 1 tbsp
Curry leaves 5-7
Hot water 1 cup
Onions, green chillies and carrots 1 cup, finely chopped
Salt to taste


Wash the kodon flour thrice, thoroughly. Cut the onions, green chillies, and vegetables.

Heat the oil in a non-stick pan and add mustard and cumin seeds. After a few seconds, add onion, green chillies, carrot, and curry leaves. Cook for two minutes on a medium flame.

Add the kodon flour and hot water and salt. Mix well and cover the pan.

Cook the upma thoroughly for a few minutes. Serve hot.
