Puffed Rice (Murmura) Upma

Today turned out to be a very pleasant day for us. First, went for a long drive and had lunch from a restaurant. Had Chicken Biriyani, Nan and Paneer Butter masala for Lunch :). Reached home in the evening, went for a walk after having Tea. By the time we came back, it was dark and fog was starting to set in. All in all a good day supported by really good climate... 

We decided to have a light dinner as we were still feeling full. I prepared puffed rice upma or Murmura upma as dinner.
