This a quick healthy breakfast/dinner recipe prepared from raghi vermicelli. I used Anil raghi vermicelli for making this semiya upma. I have posted both the sweet and savoury versions of the upma. Finger Millet (Kezhvaraku) is a great source of iron. The fiber content of the raghi helps manage cholesterol problems. So this is a great recipe for all age group. Fortunately, kids just love the sweeter version. So why don’t you give it a try and enjoy the satisfaction of preparing some healthy recipe for your family? Leave your comments and query below.
