Today in breakfast I have made upma.
Upma is a South Indian delicacy.Mostly it is made in up of semolina, onions, ginger, green chilies, In south India they use Bengal gram pulse(chana dal)and urad dal, curry leaves and mustard seeds but because we have shifted to new house, I couldn't manage curry leaves and made upma without that, the taste was good,I used peanuts too, In breakfast upma and a cup of strong coffee is not bad. My nephew is 5 yrs old, loves it. Not only that it is less time consuming but also tasty, so, when we don’t like to spend most of the time in kitchen ,we can make this.

Here is the recipe----
