Upma is a very easily made dish just in few minutes when we are back home after a long holidays or when we are out of veggies stock. Usually upma is not liked by many people but in our house , flattened brown rice upma is a big hit . Any upma involves just sauting and made instantly in no time without any veggies and it counts only calories but , I make upmas interesting by sauting sometimes in coconut oil or ghee and this time I had some left over Channa and rajma cooked which sparked me to do this upma which has turned into a tasty protein rich dish. Flattened rice upma is a gluten free one which can be had by all age groups. This dish can be prepared for dinner or breakfast. Try this nutrient rich upma and have a healthy meal with your loved ones. So, now lets start with the making of this protein rich upma.
