Heat oil in pan add jeera, mustard, red chilli, udad dal and chana dal.
Add curry leaves and all chopped veggies .
Now add peanuts and cook for 3 mits.
Add salt and mix well.
Drain water and add sago to the cooked veggies.
Mix well and garnish with cilantro.
Do not cook for more than 2 mits after adding sago.

Method for powder:

Add salt, chilli powder and garlic to daliya and make a powder in mixer.
Serve this powder with the sago upma.
All this method takes exactly 14 mits to prepare and serves 2 people.
This upma tastes well with mango pickle.

A quick one indeed.
Does not sago become gummy instead of being seperate perals, if you soak overnight?
