Rava Upma Recipe
Rava Upma - I have always wondered why upma is cornered and disliked by many.....I love all upma varieties either bread upma, idli upma, aval upma, or wheat rava upma etc....I had/have no complaints eating upma anytime of the day but only thing that matters to me the most is the consistency...it should be not be gooey it should be fluffy. You can add vegetables to this rava upma like in rava kitchadi but I make it plain to enjoy the full flavour of rava :) You can have any spicy chutney as side dish for upma.
