My Notes:

  • You can even add 1 tsp of chana dal while tempering.
  • You can add boiled vegetables , tomatoes etc to this upma.Add roasted peanuts for extra crunch.
  • Soaking time of poha depends on the variety of poha if its thin it takes very less time, if its thick then it needs a little extra time.
