Just out of curiosity, pauljoseph, could you help me with your title. Carrot is obvious. Umpa is the semolina, right? What does rava mean?

Oh, I intend to. I'd been mulling over what to serve under black beans, other than rice, for a lunch this Tuesday. This is exactly what I intend to use. I'm not the photographer you are, but if I can get a decent photo, I'll post it.

This looks delicious. I usually have a semolina soup as a breakfast with a drizzle of olive oil. I really like the way this recipe is molded as a cup shape.

trying this for dinner, have had a hankering for uppma since reading the foodpickle about it earlier this week, your English is far better than any Indian dialect I speak.
