Semiya Upma | Easy Indian Breakfast/Dinner recipe

Loved this dish just with the seasoning but as the usage of veggie is compulsory now started to add the veggies It makes the dish very attractive and enhances the taste.When I took the snap I wanted to draw some good designs with the ketchup but shweets gave a weird look thinking what I was trying to do.So dropped the idea and stuck to normal stuff.

This one is a simple tiffin item..we can add scrambled eggs to the upma at the end to add more taste.My friends serve it with tomato ketchup.I'm not big fan of ketch up's.Try out !
