Tomato Upma -- Tomato Bath Upma Recipe

Tomato Upma -- Tomato Bath Upma Recipe
Upma is one of the South Indian breakfast recipe which can be made without any prior preparation. We use sooji/semolina to make upma, though contains low fat, it is a high carbohydrate food. It is also a low calorie and cholesterol food and rich in fiber. Sooji is ideal for people in weight loss program and diabetic friendly food too. 
Tomato Upma is another version of upma made in Andhra with semolina and lot of tomatoes. Tomatoes are good for heart.
