Fresh flavors, apt texture, and a clean ingredient list, this rava upma is high on convenience. This is quick to prepare and would be perfect as a fuss-free breakfast option when you're short on time.

Struggling to whip up a fresh, wholesome breakfast in the morning? Calling a dry piece of toast ‘breakfast’? Not anymore! We are here with a solution which is an instant rava upma.

Though there is nothing that can come at par with a freshly made upma at home, but for those who do not have the time or live alone, RTE meals can be a boon. Yes, many brands offer upma but the list of ingredients is what sets it back a few steps.

Our Review Factors

What are we expecting from the taste company’s classic rava upma? We are looking for a fresh-tasting upma with homestyle flavors that gets ready in minutes. 

Here’s a list of the factors that helped us form a detailed review of The Taste Company Classic Rava Upma :

1. Taste 

The taste of any classic upma is a mix of different elements – typical Southern flavors of curry leaves, mustard seeds and dal, the freshness of vegetables (if any), the flavor of ghee or any other fat, and seasoning levels. We closely examined every element under this parameter. 

2. Texture 

In this segment, we gauged the texture of the semolina along with the crunch of dal and cashews. Has the semolina plumped up well? Do the dals and cashews retain their crunch? Is the upma smooth or lumpy? Is it hard, gloopy or smooth and soft?

3. Convenience 

The Tasting Company’s Classic Rava Upma requires just the addition of hot water and a wait time of 5 minutes. Hence, we have taken the convenience factor as our third prime parameter. How was our experience with this instant rava upma? 

4. Ingredients 

Any RTE meal is usually filled with additives like anticaking agents, flavor enhancers and more. What about the upma by The Taste Company? Clean, crisp labels or a whole lot of NOPE?

5. Other Non-Tasting Parameters 


How well is the upma packed? Does it include a spoon/napkin? Is the packaging travel friendly? 


Is the price justified for the quantity provided? 

Searching for the best ready to eat upma? We compared six brands, here’e the one you should buy. 

The Taste Company Classic Rava Upma – Detailed Review

Product Information 

The upma comes in a white and black color box pack. Inside the box, there is a sealed pouch that holds the upma. There is no spoon or napkin included in the box. The 76 gm pack is priced at Rs. 89 and it offers a shelf life of six months. 

This 76 gm net weight is ideal for a single person. The outer box is pretty sturdy. 


In the dry mix, we could spot a lot of dal, mustard seeds and cashews. Also, the upma is made using large-sized rava and not the fine suji that we usually use at home. 


The ingredient list is as follows: 

Rava upma (93.8%): Rava, Edible oil, Mustard seeds, Bengal gram dal, Urid dal, Onion, and Green chilli. It also has Ginger, Salt, Ghee, Curry leaves and Milk, and Roasted cashews (6.2%). 

Mishry’s View : The clean ingredient list is a cherry on the cake here. Despite being a packaged product, the absence of preservatives, added flavors or any artificial colors is appreciated.
