Sago Upma - Javvarisi Upma Recipe

Sago Upma Recipe
I first tasted sago upma at my aunts place when I was in school, it was served as a snack and I instantly loved its look and enjoyed the upma too. After I tried sabudanan khichdi, I had little sago left so made this upma for breakfast.I love the lemon flavour the best in this upma tangy and yummy upma ready in minutes. Do try this for yourself or for your kids!
