anyway, i would conclude by adding some tips, suggestions and variations to the susla recipe or puffed rice upma. firstly, make sure to rinse the churumuri in water and squeeze off the water before it turns mushy. secondly, you can also add tomato to get the tangy flavour. puffed rice turns soggy when it rinsed in water, so make sure not to mash and mix gently. lastly, the addition of veggies is completely open-ended and you can vary as per your taste. you can vary it by adding grated carrot, finely chopped capsicum, corn kernels, finely chopped beans and even seasonal raw mangoes.
