I love semiya upma but DH is just opposite it doesn't like anything that has upma word with it! So I make this for myself and my brother if not serving him upma and for myself along it's mostly serve as lunch other than breakfast and during our schooling days it used to be lunch box for us. That's the wonder of this delicious semiya upma serve as any meal of day and it still charms all.


You can add any vegetables of your choice and also use ghee instead of oil for rich flavors, it really taste yum if we use ghee or top up the upma with a little ghee, also some people add a pinch of turmeric with water you can do that to get yellow color upma if preferred. For now straight to the recipe and I am sure you will like this semiya upma too if you haven't tried it so far.
