Pori Upma

I learnt this recipe from one of friend Nandhini during my college days.She is from Srilanka and used to visit our place during semester holidays and she used to cook a lot of specialty dishes from Srilanka.This upma is one among them.As soon as we both reach our home on friday night, she used to make this in a jiffy.I have not made these myself so far.Nearly after a decade I suddenly remembered this upma.The way she prepared this was still fresh in my memory and I immediately prepared this for evening snack!
