Upma Recipe | Rava/Sooji Upma | Quick breakfast

"Upma " is one among the most disliked breakfast among youngsters and the same adds for me too..When my mum use to make it i never like it,but things changed now.After marriage i started liking it . Upma will taste good if  eating with coconut chutney and  equally taste good with sugar too .This is quickest recipe to make on busy morning days or when alone.
