Why do we need instant rava upma mix?

I know many of us do not really look forward to rava upma for breakfast. I feel it has been defamed by named by not cooking properly. People either cook it lumpy or very soggy. This makes the homemade rava upma look very unpalatable. However, we do not mind having rava upma or rava kichadi while we visit Saravana Bhavan or any other restaurant. Have you ever wondered as to why it is so?. Well, I always feel that the upma needs the right amount of oil/ ghee, vegetables and ratio of water to that appetising bowl of rava upma.

Next question would be, why do we need an instant mix for the upma. While cooking the upma itself does not take much time, it is having all the ingredients and the will to cook it early in the morning. When we are short of time, it is definitely a boon to have instant mixes. Some of the mixes which come very handy are this instant rava upma mix, instant Pongal mix, instant adai mix, instant paruppu usili mix and instant Gujarati dal mix.

Homemade instant mixes versus store-bought instant mixes:

Store-bought mixes are very helpful when we are not able to make homemade mixes. However, the store-bought mixes will have preservatives. These preservatives are added to increase shelf life. I basically am trying to avoid as much as store-bought processed food. With this easy instant rava upma mix recipe, I feel there is no need to buy the store-bought ones.
