Tomato quinoa upma recipe, Quinoa upma recipe

First of all very sorry guys I have been in one long and few short vacation trips because of which I could not focus much on blog all these days, I am hoping this does not continue in upcoming days and will post interesting and easy recipes as usual every alternate day. So lets get today’s recipe!

Tomato quinoa upma is one such healthy and delicious preparation that requires very less time for its making and also demands those basic ingredients from kitchen still resulting in a unique flavored dish. Tomato quinoa upma can be served as breakfast for any age group due to its health benefits. I usually prepare quinoa in many varieties and make it flavorful for easy consumption as the grain itself has no taste. This upma is mildly spicy, slightly tangy as tomato being dominant factor and little nutty and crunchy due to quinoa. If you are looking for any unique flavored dish filled with taste and health and something to fit in your diet routine this recipe should get along the list. So lets get to the making!
