Ragi Semiya


Ever since the first time I tried this Ragi Semiya, I have become a huge fan. It’s so easy and tasty that words can’t describe the pleasure of this dish. It’s as easy to make as any other upma but it’s so yummy and it’s ragi which is healthy. What more to ask for!

Mixed vegetables  1 1/4 cup

  1. I used Anil Ragi Semiya which is 180 gms per packet
  2. Mixed vegetables I used included mushroom, capsicum, carrot, spinach and sweet corn.
  3. Part of them were leftovers from lunch which worked well with the semiya.
