Sago or javarisi upma.I learnt this recipe from my friend.As a child i have never eaten this upma.Only when I started  cooking I started exploring and looked for more variety.This is quiet a simple one except for the fact that you have to soak it for a little while.

Coriander leaves
11/2tbs
Lime juice

Method
1.Soak sago for two hours.Soak it in just enough water to immerse.
2.Put it in a strainer after two hours so that excess water runs off.Heat oil in a pan and add mustard seeds and when it crackles add Channa Dal(kadalai paruppu),onions,green chilli,ginger, curry leaves and turmeric powder.
3.Fry till onions become slightly brown.
4.Add the sago and salt mix well and depending on the sago close it for a minute or two and cook.Finally add lime juice mix well and serve.Garnish with coriander leaves.
You can add some coarsly powdered peanuts to the upma at the end.It adds taste,flavour and protein to the upma.
