Upma or Uppittu recipe using Bansi Rava(sooji)

Upma can be made using Bansi Rava or Normal Rava and it is a very common breakfast in South India.  Both tastes good and my husband loves if it is served as a ‘Chow Chow bhath’ with kesari bhath as served in Hotels of karnataka.  It is easier to make, and tastes good if its made with vegetables.
