Rice Adai Upma - Rice Dosa Upma - Dinner Recipes - Breakfast, Brunch Recipes -- Snack recipes

When I saw a Mother's day video from Raji from RaksKitchen I remembered a similar dish I used to have from one of my best friend from college. She normally brings it with Adai. Since Raks video called for plain Rice adai / dosa, I decided to do with Rice dosa. These days Coconut is back in health trend. I have been using coconut oil for seasoning. So for this I have used coconut oil too. My mum would be surprised as she used to reserve dishes without coconut for me. Now a days I am ok with coconut gratings in my vegetables and using coconut oil for seasoning too
