Rava Tomato Bath/Tomato Rava Bath/Semolina Tomato Bath

To make a quick dish for myself on a lazy day,I prefer to make one pot meal or upma.As my family say a big no to upmas and kichadi I make it for lunch,once in a while to satisfy my cravings.
My mom used to make mixed vegetable masala kichidi/bath whenever we are bored with regular upam..The same recipe I make it with little more tomato and no veggies.If the semolia/rava is roasted then this can be made in no time.To fasten the cooking process I used the hot water to cook the semolina.

Your pictures are so inviting and tempting. Love it.

I like tomato bath compared to Upma. Love your presentation:)

Omg, wat a dish, just my mouth is watering here.

Who have managed to make humble upma look so sophisticated and delicious. I'm not a huge fan of upma myself but love its convenience and make it once in a while.

Nalaini I love the plate. In my house upma is something that is not much appreciated. I love the way you have presented it.

Rava tomato bhat looks so scrumptious.Love your pictures Nalini.
