  • Adjust the chili according to your taste.
  • I used MTR semiya here, as the pack suggests to roast the semiya before use. Normally i dont when i  use anil semiya variety.
  • If you wish, add few cilantro at the end.
  • You can add some veggies as per your liking. 
  • Even without roasting the semiya also, the upma would turned out wonderful.I have tried many times without roasting.
