Samai Upma Recipe | Little Millets Upma Recipe


Saamai Upma Recipe

Samai upma is another addition to quick and healthy breakfast recipe. I have got lots of millets in stock and trying out different varieties of recipes using those. This upma is one such simple recipe. It can be prepared in just 20 minutes. The preparation method is almost similar to the usual upma recipe except for the thing that the little millet has to be soaked for atleast 15 minutes. It tastes great when served hot with some spicy chutney.
