I love this combo! Hats off to whoever invented this This is a twist from the regular upma in that it has no vegetables and can be eaten on vrat days. In our family my grandpa used to make this and my mom learnt it from him and passed on the recipe to me. When i wrote down the name of the recipe as Thata’s recipe my mom said, Arre i am giving you the recipe and teaching it and you write down thata’s recipe? ” LOL! So i call it Amma/Thata’s uppit..hahaha! But the interesting thing about this is you use a different ingredient for every step to bring in the flavor of a traditional upma. For example, you substitute black pepper for heat, yoghurt for lemon/sourness. You know those weekend mornings when you are somewhat out of grocery and don’t want to do anything but still want to eat something hot and yummy? Well this is for those days or moods Pair this up with a cup of hot coffee and you are in food heaven! Ok enough talk i just fed myself this and so am rambling let me give you the recipe so you can tell it for yourself.
