Varagarisi upma kozhukkattai / Kodo millet upma kozhukkattai

Upma kozhukkattai is a tiffin item . Those days my paati used to make arisi upma, upma kozhukkattai.. Missing those days. But I was very happy to make it for the first time using kodo millet and it tasted awesome! It tasted the same way as my paatis.. It's very aromatic! 

I had this upma kozhukkattai and coriander chutney in my friend aunty' house and loved the combo... Do try it , I am sure you will love it!
