Tomato Upma

Today I am sharing a basic easy, yummy upma recipe. Upma is my favorite. I can eat it at any time of the day. My house is always stocked with rava, semiya and Batter. These form the divine trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh of my kitchen. 😉 Weekly at least once or twice it makes an appearance. I love them in all variations.

This one is with tomatoes. The tanginess of tomatoes adds a new flavor and takes the upma to another level. I hope you try this and like. Can be eaten all by itself, or with chutney/sambhar and a nice cup of chat/coffee. Bliss.
