Add water and bring it to boil until the vegetables are cooked.Add salt, ghee, coconut, tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes. Reduce the heat and add the semolina(rava) slowly to the mixture.

P.S.Are you extremely busy ??Dont have time to fry rava and make upma you can do this way...I usually have a readymade mix of fried rava with seasoning.So when you want to make upma you just put some oil to the saucepan,add water allow it to boil,add salt,sugar and coconut gratings,seasoned rava,stir the mixture and cover it for a while.Later add lemon and coriander leaves...This is plain upma(It tastes yummy)You can make vegetable upma by adding vegetables also. Enjoy quick upma
