Mixed Vegetables & Angel Hair Pasta Upma

Here we starts our 24th edition of blogging marathon today, thanks to Srivalli for making this monthly event very interesting with so many beautiful themes. Everytime i'll go to her space to chose my themes for the next blogging marathon, she never forget to surprise me with her beautiful themes, dunno where she get those incredible themes. Seriously she rocks, Srivalli just admire you the way you chose the themes.

Coming to this week's blogging marathon, my theme for the first week is cooking with different veggies, Srivalli have suggest three combinations of different three veggies,my choice went immediately to cabbage,carrot and green peas. So my two next recipes will definitely have this three veggies as main ingredients. Today am posting this upma with those veggies and angel hair pasta, this pasta is quite cheap here and i usually make kheer with them just to replace the vermicelli. Usually none will notice the difference between the vermicelli and this pasta in kheer,thats why i tried this upma. We had a super filling breakfast, this upma tastes simply fabulous when served along with spicy coconut chutney.Check out the bloggers running this 24th edition of blogging marathon here.Sending to  Siri's Celebrating First Anniversary.
