Baked Upma is an attempt at baking regular South Indian Upma in an Oven. This Semolina cake is easy to serve as its baked in a Muffin Tin.
I have a fancy of making different dishes in a Muffin Tin and in the process think of vague things to do. However, today’s dish is almost similar to a regular baked semolina cake, albiet being a savory one and same as the regular Upma recipe. After making Thakkali Upma, I wanted the recipe to be almost same, except making it for single portion.
After making upma for the previous night dinner, I can’t be again serving the same even though cooked in different appliances. So I made this for myself. Since this was getting baked, I added Baking powder and it took almost 25 mins to get done. The taste and texture was fine. I will have to mention that it was more dense and soft. I was only looking at the time. Also since I baked it in a Muffin tin, the texture might have changed. Had this been baked in a regular tray, it might have been more cake like.
Anyway I enjoyed this experiment and in my next post will showcase whats the bext method to make Upma.
This combines both BM#83 make a dish in different appliances and Bakeathon 2017.
