Peas Semiya Upma

Semiya upmaaaaaa......mmmmm..... Thats how V and me drool!! I love all varieties of Upma as they are very light and easy to make. In fact, my MIL has introduced me to much more new varieties which never existed even in my imagination.

Now here is a simple semiya upma recipe with good nutritional value. As most of you know, adding vegetables make the upma all the more healthy and visually-appealing. So here we go with our Peas Semiya Upma.

Oh this is interesting. I never use semiya or what we call 'sev' in savoury dishes. It's almost always only used in sweet desserts! But of course it would work as you've shown here! This looks awesome, really nice way of cooking it... almost like a pasta dish! Fantastic! :D x
