Puffed Rice upma is an easy and tasty breakfast which can also be served as snack along with an evening coffee or tea. The preparation is similar to regular upma except for the water ratio. Only little water is required to soften the puffed rice, so be careful while adding water. This can be eaten as such without side dish but this can also be served with onion raita.
