Here is an offbeat upma that will blow your boredom away. Not made of semolina, wheat or any of the standard ingredients, the Makai Upma is not even made of native corn (jowar). It is made of crushed sweet corn kernels cooked in milk and perked up with green chillies and lemon juice, along with a traditional tempering, and a garnish of aromatic coriander. This is one upma that is sure to be enjoyed by not just adults but kids too!
