Rawa puli upma

                                                                    This is a easy tangy snack, though i make it rarely it is our favourite one.It is similar to upma except that you cook it in Tamarind water.The fact that i pour it on a plate and cut into pieces makes it more interesting for the kids.

  • 1/4tsp of Turmeric powder
  • Salt to Taste
  • A Generous pinch of Asafoetida
  • Half a tsp of Jaggery powder

How To

1.Roast the rawa in a pan for five minutes not until it gets brown.
