Mixed Millet & Grains Upma is a healthy and nutritious dish that is perfect for a filling breakfast or a light lunch.
My theme for the last week of this month’s blogging marathon is ‘cooking with millets’. Millets have made a much needed comeback in the recent past and I’ve jumped on the band wagon too. Millets are the easiest way to add more whole-grains to our daily meals. So today I have a simple mixed millet & grains upma recipe that is great for breakfast or lunch or even dinner.I bought a bag of mixed grains with millets recently. It had wheat, maize, jowar, ragi and bajra. This upma recipe is from the back of the bag itself. Method for making this dish is quite different from my usual way. The addition of yogurt to upma sounded very interesting and intriguing for me. I am not a big fan of yogurt or upma for that matter, but I wanted to give it a try just to see how it tastes.I am really glad that I tried this upma recipe. Once cooked you don’t really taste the yogurt but it gives a nice tangy background to the dish. You can add any of your favorite vegetables – I added some finely chopped cabbage and grated carrot. Upma turned out absolutely delicious. It is filling, hearty and comforting. It tastes best when served hot, but I ate it cold for lunch and it still tasted pretty good.Lets check out what my fellow marathoners have cooked today for BM# 94.
