Upma (kerala Recipe)


In my early days I hardly used to prepare Upma. After marriage one day my husband told me to prepare upma for breakfast. I immediately told yes and it was a big flop. Tried it gain 2-3 times and same story got repeated. Later I realized that I was not roasting rava. Now I am very confident J and I have a good recipe for all of you. It’s so easy and quick to make that when ever  I am little lazy to make breakfast I immediately make upma. I use my dear friend Rakhi’s mum recipe. Once again thanks Aunty!!!!
