Ready to eat Upma

BM # 52  Week 4  Day 3

Day 3 , and I have an Instant Upma for you guys. Upma is one of the most simple , quick and delicious breakfast of the south. I have used dried curry leaves and dried coriander leaves . You could check here to dry them instantly in a microwave. I have a post on Drying Mint leaves. The greens retain their color and look , which is so fresh.

I have had a similar upma in my friend's place, but she makes the upma on a stove top, I wanted to give you a version where you could just add boiling water to the jar and wait for a few minutes and enjoy your breakfast.I shall share the stove top version later.
