            Walnuts benefit in lowering bad cholesterol. My kids love this upma and I sometimes give them when they crave for noodles.

3 tbsp of walnuts
1/2 tsp of red chilli powder
1 tbsp of coriander leaves
1 tbsp of oil
1 tbsp of ghee
salt as required


1 tsp of cumin seeds
1 piece of cinnamon


1. In a preheated pan, add ghee and oil. Add seasoning to the oil.

3. Add onion, green chillies and ginger saute till the raw smell disappears. Add chilli powder and 1/2 tsp of salt to the pan.
