Breakfast is important to each and every one​ and health is determined by based on breakfast​. If we don't have breakfast, we won't get energy and it won't come if we have any food without breakfast. Breakfast is essential for human body. It helps to provide more energy and improve the process of brain. But today world everyone is very much busy with some other works so that almost everyone is avoiding breakfast. So our health is becoming weak day by day so we have to spend more money for medicines. We should not avoid breakfast at any cost. If we avoid breakfast, sugar and cholesterol levels are increasing. Breakfast should be healthy and we are preparing different dishes for breakfast. Usually we are making idly with chutney and sambar, dosa and chutney, appam and green peas Curry or any non-vegetarian dishes such as appam with chicken curry, beef curry, mashed tapioca and beef curry or chicken curry or fish curry. Upma is also very healthy breakfast and it can make by using different tasty ingredients. Different types of upma are available. Wheat upma, oats upma, different vegetables and non-vegetables mixed upma are the common upma dishes. We can use any combination to make upma but here I made very easy and familiar rava upma which everyone knows. It is very easy recipe and also very tasty to have. It contains a lot of health benefits. It can use it with any combination whatever we need. If we don't have curries we can use it with banana and it is my favourite combination. We can make different dishes by using Semolina flour but we are first remembering upma. To get the exact taste and softness we have to add enough water to roast it well and we have to put rava Powder little by little and stir it properly. This breakfast is very good to everyone including children so start a day with this healthy breakfast.
