This is a traditional South Indian breakfast dish, savory and very good with a cup of good coffee. This is the way it was made at home all through my childhood and the way I make it now.Edited 5/8/09 - I'm changing a couple of things to make this a bit healthier. Reduced oil from 2 tsp to 1, eliminated 1 tsp ghee to fry semolina, put coconut and cashews under optional additions and changed the servings from 2 to 4. I'm also going to try substituting quinoa for the semolina one of these days (soak, rinse, toast quinoa)
