2 cups dry semolina or suji (available in Indian stores)
1 medium onion sliced or chopped
2-3 green chilies sliced
handful of curry leaves
1 cinnamon stick
1tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
red chili flakes to taste
dried whole chilies (broken) to taste
salt to taste
1 Tbs of canola oil
3-4 cups boiling water (boil water in a kettle and have ready)
Note: there are packages of pre-roasted suji, but we recommend roasting it yourself because it gives the best result.
In a large pan heat canola oil and add onions, green chilies, curry leaves, cinnamon stick, salt and red chili pieces. Fry for 3-4 minutes until onions become soft. Then add the cumin seeds, mustard seeds and red chile pieces. Fry for another 2-3 minutes.
Note: I recommend you use a pan you can stir aggressively with a wooden spoon. A stainless steel based pan is best since a non-stick could get scratched.
