Ragi Upma ( Iron Rich)

by Tarla Dalal


Ragi Upma is a great breakfast option when you want to have a healthy yet easy breakfast. Red millet flour, so full of fibre and iron, makes this a super-nutritious dish. So, although the colour of this upma is not so appealing, its nutrient quotient is, making it a must-try. Make sure you serve it immediately or it will turn lumpy.
