Upma is a easy and tasty breakfast or tiffin, many kids don't like upma’s , fussing, crying and many types of acting they do to avoid eating upma. Mint leaves always make any dish attractive and improve the taste. We all used to add mint leaves in biriyani, curries and many other gravies. But I added this in the upma which I made yesterday for my breakfast it was tasty and it was looking attractive also. So it made my daughter feel that some masala semiya is being prepared and she tried to come near it and tasted it. Hope u all will like it.
