RAW MANGO-CUCUMBER KHARABATH/AAM-KHEERA UPMA

Posted in : BREAKFAST RECIPES on by : Divya Suresh

Today’s yummy breakfast, which is healthy and apt for this hot weather. This time I have made it with a small twist in it ie…. added grated raw mango instead of adding regular lemon juice for that tangy taste.  And it turned out to be more tasty and flavorful. We need to add a masala powder to make kharabath, that’s how it becomes different from regular Upma. I paired it with Vermicelli/Semiya curd bath → Vermicelli/Semiya curd bath and recently made raw mango pickle → raw mango Pickle
