Couscous Upma & My Guest Post For Siri

We start again a week of blogging marathon, for this second week of blogging marathon i choosed upmas as theme, so for the next two days i'll be posting variety upmas. For the frist day of blogging marathon, am posting a quick,easy,healthy and super filling upma with couscous. I simply used onions and usual spices to make this upma,you can very well go for mixed veggies while making this upma.

Coming to this couscous upma, even a bachelor can make this quick upma very much easily and definitely everyone at home will enjoy thoroughly this upma, i served this upma with a dash of chaat masala and we just loved it.Check out the other marathoners running this 21st edition here.


2cups Couscous
1no Onion (big n sliced finely)
2nos Green chillies (slit opened)
