VEGETABLE POHA ( ATUKULA UPMA)

Photobucket
Atukulu – poha or Beaten rice is dehusked flattened raw rice. Which is easily digestible and very popular across India in many forms like upma, payasam and also fried in little oil mix with spices and nuts can eaten as a savory in some places. But most of the places people make this as a break fast. Ummm I like to have this with milk and jaggery as porridge. Healthy, easily digestible and better then rice because they are not polished. And here I am with lots of vegetables with poha here I go with the recipe……..
