Pori upma.. Spicy puffed rice upma

Upma is a very  common breakfast or evening tiffin in almost every south indian home. There are similar versions in north india too. The varieties of upma are endless.... everybody can think of new ways to make a new one. In our home too we make many kinds of them.. say aval upma, rava upma, semiya upma, idly upma, bread upma and i guess a few more that are not coming up to my mind right now. These are of the light food category that can be a break from the filling and too heavy ones
