Ha I have not posted for a long time, now I am back and also back in Namma Bengaluru, ha feels sooo good to be back, that’s the reason I have not been able to blog, I have been travelling, meeting people, eating , eating and eating sigh.

My amma is always trying to make the food healthy, so this time, she had bought different types of millets and wanted to try it with me when I was back, so one of the breakfast was this millet upma. Nowadays everyone is using millets, and it’s healthy too. This recipe is not only healthy, easy but also tasty too.
