Vegetable Sooji Upma, Popular South Indian Breafast, Rawa Upma

Vegetable Sooji Upma is a popular South Indian Breakfast.


Melt in your mouth Sooji Upma made with lots and lots of veggies. Typically served with coconut chutney. Love the fact that its gluten free breakfast idea that makes it even more tempting.

So for the longest time ever I could not get the right texture of Upma. Sometimes it was too sticky and sometimes it would be like a water slide.

But with time, patience and experimentation I have this tested recipe for you.
