I had some broccoli florets and a Delhi carrot in my fridge. I just wanted to use it up. Yesterday, I thought of preparing wheat vermicelli upma. I just added those veggies to the upma and the flavour was quite different, but nice. We enjoyed it with coconut chutney. You can use any vegetable to this upma.
