Vegetable Rava Upma is a quick breakfast which makes a great tasting. Normally people give a weird reaction when we say I am going to prepare upma today. The basic upma is quiet difficult to have in the morning. But if you prepare upma with vegetables they will definitely fall in love with them. The flavors of vegetables will add a nice taste to this upma. You can make certain variations depending on your preference.
Here is the recipe...
Sooji / Semolina / Rava - 1 cup
Carrot - 1, large
