Kambu Aval Upma / Pearl Millet Flakes Upma / Bajra Flakes Upma

A healthy twist to the traditional South Indian breakfast recipe Aval Upma using Kambu / Bajra Flakes instead of Rice. 

The taste was good ; it goes well with coconut chutney / Sugar.😃

Also check my Kambu / Pearl Millet recipes which I have posted earlier:

  1. Nice and healthy recipe of Bajra Flakes. Really commendable. I am eating True Elements Bajra Flakes . It will be really helpful if you write the same blog for Wheat Flakes and Multigrain flakes. As I wanted to purchase these products but not aware of benefits. If you provide it will be really helpful.
