Upma is a popular breakfast dish in Southern India, typically made of grains such as Wheat, rice etc, spices, vegetables and nuts. I love making these with Asian rice noodles, because they cook quickly, and taste delicious. You can play around and add other vegetables if you like. Any leftover vegetables will work great as well. —Shalini Singh @ Shalini's Kitchen
