  • Cover this with a cling wrap and keep it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
  • This is just to make the mixture firm. You can skip this and go ahead for frying.
  • Heat oil for frying, when it becomes hot, keep the flame to medium and deep fry this in oil .
  • Add in batches , do not over crowd the pan.


  • Drain excess oil in a kitchen towel. Serve hot with tomato ketchup. semiya-cutlet


  • If you have left over semiya upma you can make this too.
  • In that case add the boiled potato and mash it nicely with the upma mixture.
  • While adding the semiya ensure all the water is completely absorbed.
  • In any case if the mixture is slightly wet, add 1-2 tblsp of maida flour to this and mix well.
