Seviyan Upma

If you want a breakfast inspo, you need to try Seviyan Upma with vegetables. If you haven’t tried this dish then it’s definitely worth trying. I added spicy green chilies to add a kick to it and loaded it with vegetables to make it nutritious and I added peanuts for the crunch. It tasted so delicious. It’s kid friendly, you can subtract the chilies for them if they do not eat spicy food. Its like a meal as its super filling. I got my Seviyan from Indian grocery store.
