Rice Ada Upma Recipe - Leftover Ada Recipes

Rice Ada Upma Recipe
Rice Ada Upma is a quick and easy breakfast recipe that you can make for a busy morning.I had some leftover ada which I bought for making payasam for Onam.I always end up making  only payasam with ada so this time tried upma with it.I googled a bit for more interesting ada recipes but sadly none were there but I am happy that I tried this simple upma as I loved it especially with the coconut oil flavour, soft ada with crunchy onion and carrots perfect for breakfast!

You can make sweet version by adding coconut,sugar and cardamom powder.
