Cauliflower & Red Rice Flakes Upma

An easy breezy upma,gets ready with less than 15minutes. I prepared quickly this upma yesterday for our dinner as i felt really lazy to make something else. Just added some leftover finely chopped cauliflower florets to make this quick upma more healthier. You can skip cauliflower and add your favourite veggies here. Serve this upma simply with a coconut chutney, both together turns your dinner simply filling.You can also prepare this quick and healthy upma even for your breakfast as it goes for a simple and easy preparation. Dont worry if you dont have red rice flakes,make it with usual rice flakes. Sending this healthy upma to my event Healthy Diet-Fast & Quick Healthy Dish guest hosted by Kalpana.

Je serai très curieuse de goûter à des flocons de riz. C'est un goût que je ne connais pas encore.
Ca doit être délicieux.
A bientôt

I love the red rice falkes better that white one. It has an earthy sweet taste. Poha with cauliflower is new to me. Looks delicious though
