Millet Flakes upma recipe, Breakfast recipes

Millet flakes upma recipe, with video and step by step pictures. Millet flakes upma is an easy to make healthy breakfast recipe. We all make Poha upma | batata poha using rice flakes. In our house, poha upma is a quite staple and i make it once in a week. And the only dish, which Suresh can make so confidently is Poha upma. I generally use getti aval for making batata poha and sometimes the medium thick poha also will be used in my kitchen. We all love the addition of peanuts in poha upma and so i generally add little more of peanuts in my upma.
Recently i saw Millet flakes,in many varieties of millet when i went to India. I thought i will buy a packet to try that but in the last minute i forgot about that. Few days back when i visited Sri Murugan stores(Singapore) to buy my grocery, I saw the varieties of Millet flakes there. I am excited to see that and picked a 250 gms of Little millet flakes. I tried Upma with that and it turned out quite well and no one noticed that it is made using millet. The taste is so similar, i made this recipe by combining my Pori upma and batata poha recipes. You can also make millet flakes paal payasam, thayir sadam using this millet flakes.
 For my readers in Singapore, Sri Murugan has a wide range of Millet flakes and they are available in small 250 gms packet too. They do home delivery island wide. Download Sri Murugan stores app in Android and iOs device and place your order.
