Palak upma recipe – Spinach upma- Easy Breakfast recipes

    This year is coming to an end soon. The last week of this year. The holidays will be coming to an end. The schools will be reopening next week. So much of excitement and nervousness around now. Things will be busier again. No more of relaxing or rather lazy days!!

    We have been going out during the weekends. The weekdays are always busy with the kids around. So I did not spend more time in the kitchen. The food preparation has been really normal – healthy but not time consuming.

       I love making different varieties of upma for our weekend breakfasts or for light dinners. I made this for dinner few days back. My cousin had mentioned few years back about spinach upma her mother in law makes. Though I never asked her for the recipe that time, I was suddenly reminded of this and decided to make it like any other upma recipe. I actually wanted to use spinach puree for this recipe. I will try using puree and post about it soon.
