Rava Upma

By Divyagattani88
An excellent breakfast recipe. Easy, quick and simple dish to make out of semolina and a few basic ingredients. I love all Upma varieties be it Sooji Upma, bread Upma or idli Upma. I have learnt this recipe from my mom. She makes the world best upma. You can eat it with fresh chutney or can eat it like this only. Enjoy !!!
