How to make Barnyard Millet Upma
My Tip:You may add onions , mustard seeds, curry leaves , urad dal or other veggies of your choice for variation. If making this upma for Navratri fast, skip adding green peas, as i am not sure whether peas are included under the food allowed for fast. You may increase the amount of water to get a creamy soft porridge if making for babies and toddlers. Skip green chilies in this case. The upma can also be given in lunch box, but it tastes great when served hot.
