It`s a green masala folded semiya pulao with mixed vegetables.Iam very proud to say that this is my very own creation..Actually we only get cilantro,mint leaves here so using those two I like to prepare different dishes always.With hara masala pulao inspiration I tried this dish luckily came out very well.I added red chili but you can use green chili if you get,also I used my choice of vegetables so according to your taste you can add or skip veggies and cook this upma. Upma is a popular breakfast item across India..Instead of trying regular variety try this new dish which is easy and yummy too..This is one of the best and perfect breakfast dish.Try this next time and enjoy hot with your favorite pickle ..
