Rava upma with sprouts

0
Rava upma with moong sprouts is another variation of upma which I cook occasionally when my family wants to eat something different but healthy.
Though the basic method is same and authentic, as another upma recipe, yet I have added sprouted lentils to it. This add increases its nutritional value as well as taste. This dish is prepared with rava or sooji or semolina. Mild spices, ghee and aromatics make it very tasty.
