Adai Upma – Upma with Adai Batter

September 21, 2015 Breakfast/Dinner  12 comments

Adai Upma is an easy breakfast/dinner recipe. I simply love this Adai Upma, when compared to other upmas like Aval Upma or Semiya Upma!! Whenever I make Adai , we prefer to have it for 1 or 2 servings only. After that I make this Upma which we enjoy much better than Adai. It also serves as a good use of the leftover batter. Once u try this recipe, u will prefer to reserve a portion of adai batter to make this from next time 🙂
