Give A Healthy Spin To Upma With Millets For A Power Breakfast
Get your nutrition fix by adding millets to your daily diet. Here’s a power-packed upma recipe to try at home
The buzz word in the healthy eating space in recent years has been millets. But don’t let food trends have you believing that millets are a new phenomenon. For ages, various kinds of millets have been commonly used across Indian cultures to cook nutritious dishes. Being dense in essential nutrients, they can do wonders when added to the daily diet. For our modern palate, there are many interesting ways to spruce up millets and dish out lip-smacking treats, such as the Indian breakfast favourite – upma.
While upma is commonly made using semolina or rava, you can give it a healthy spin by using millets as the core ingredient. Similar to semolina, millets swell up when cooked in water, resembling a similar texture. Load it up with a whole bunch of seasonal veggies and healing spices, and you get taste and a health fix in one power dish.
