Rice Upma

Today Day 5 # Blogger Marathon by Srivalli. Rice upma 's taste differ from other upma's, This taste is unique and i love it . At last i made my hubby to have upma, he dont like upma varieties .Usually my mom used to prepare this for evening tiffin. She used to prepare this dish in Vengala Pathiram , (Copper vessel ), that also makes a difference in taste i believe. Wonderful combination for this upma is kotsu. Generally, i used to have it with sugar, curd and even mango pickle. This is considered as traditional and authentic dish in my home.
