Breakfast is very much important to all so we are making different breakfast dishes in our houses. Normally we are making appam, idly, dosa and bread but I need some verity dish so I made different tasty upma today. Everybody knows about aval which is usually available in houses. Upma is the main breakfast dish in every house but we are making upma with rava or semolina powder normally. This recipe will be very helpful to everyone especially those who need variety breakfast dish. I am really happy to share this dish to everyone.
Aval Upma is one of the special and tasty south and north Indian breakfast dish which is made by aval and it is very healthy breakfast. It is very simple and easy recipe to make at home. In this article, I am showing that how to make aval upma very easily. I have followed variety method because I added fried banana pieces to this so that the taste will be entirely different. The main advantage of this food is that we need not to have any side dish with this food. It is spicy less breakfast so everyone can use it especially children. We can give this to children for lunch also because it is very healthy dish. If we add lime juice to this colour will not be change and also it will be very fresh. If we need yellow colour we can add turmeric powder to this and we can make it by different types of vegetables as per individual's preferences. It has mixed flavour of banana and coconut. Make this tasty dish and start a new day with this variety taste.
