Ragi Semiya (Sevai/Uppuma) - Ragi Upma

Ragi is one of my favourite grain. Any form of Ragi really!. My entire family loves it. There were times I pack ragi sevai pocket from India. But now we get Anil Ragi Sevai in Singapore itself. Since put carrot and peas you don't require any chutney go with it. It is very simple dish but taste divine! it is healthy also.. What are you waiting for?
