Veg Gothumai / Wheat Rava Upma

For making any type of Upma I follow a simple technique to get a non sticky upma with perfect consistency and I never keep stirring the stuff while cooking. If you follow this method no tension of getting lumps too. Gothumai Rava / Broken wheat Upma is a popular and common breakfast of South India and it becomes very healthy and filling when made with veggies...
