Made with semolina (Rava) – Upma, if prepared with less oil, can prove to be a good source of protein. Semolina is naturally low in fat and therefore makes for a good weight loss breakfast option.

Adding vegetables to the Upma enhances its nutritional values and also makes it more tasty.

Originally from Tamil Nadu, Upma is today cooked across India in some form or other.

Each region and, indeed, each cook has an individual flavour for Upma based on the seasonings and/or vegetables added during cooking.
