Javarisi upma recipe| bachelors recipe

I have already posted Sabudana kichidi here, this is a version of south indian version of sago upma. I have given thsi recipe for Kungumam thozi last year themed No onion no garlic recipes . This upma can be made so easily and a pacca bachelor recipe too. If the sago is soaked prior then the upma will be ready in 15 minutes. Last week i made this for me and my hubby for breakfast and clicked too. So sharing today the recipe of javarisi upma. Check out my sabudana vada too.

Javarisi Upma

  Preparation Time : 10 mins + 3 hours soaking | Cooking Time : 15 Mins |Serves: 2

   Javarisi | sago        1 cup
   Oil        3 tsp
   Peanuts     2 tsp 
   Mustard     1/4 tsp
   Turmeric powder    1/4 tsp
   Carrot     little (optional)
   Lemon juice    1 tsp
   Green chili    1-2
   Salt     as needed
   Curry leaves     few


  • Wash the javarisi | sago nicely and soak it in little water , just to immerse it, for 1 hour. Later drain the water and keep it in a colander. Sprinkle little water and keep it overed for 2 hours.
  • You can skip this step but this will be perfect .
  • Mix the turmeric powder with this soaked sago, so that while cooking it will be evenly mixed.


  • In a pan add oil and mustard seeds, peanuts and  chopped green chilis.
  • Add the finely chopped carrots(if adding). Even adding peanuts is optinal but i love to add in upmas.


  • Add the soaked and drained sago to this and cook in a very low flame.
  • Add salt to this.
  • Cook for 5 minutes in a low flame without getting it burnt. The sago will turn glossy. Be careful not to form it into a lumpy mass.
  • Switch off the flame and add the lemon juice to this. Mix well. Add curry leaves.


  • Serve this always hot, else it will become soggy.
  1. Do not soak the sago in more water , this will make the upma soggy.
  2. Overnight soaking is also ok. ensure you add less water only.
  3. You can add finely chopped capsicum also if you want.
  4. Peanuts can be replaced with cashewnuts too.
