Since I learned to preapre this Upma, it always save me when I'm confused what to prepare for breakfast. This is the common type of Upma.

1 cup Rava
1 Onion (medium), finely chopped
2 Green Chillies, slit lengthwise
1/2 inch long Ginger, minced
1 medium size carrot, diced into smal cubes
1/2 tsp Salt
A few of Curry leaves
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2 tspGhee
Coriander leaves

Dry roast the rava in a pan till it becomes light brown. Keep aside.
In another pan, heat ghee and fry the mustard seeds. Add curry leaves, chopped onions, chillies, minced ginger, carrot and coriander leaves to it and fry for 2 - 3 minutes.
Add 1 1/2 cups of water and salt. Let it boil. Last, add rava to the boiling water little by little, stirring the water properly. Cook until it is soft and lumpy.
Serve hot.
