    Godumai upma is my hubby's fav.He loves it soaked in sour curd before tempering and cooking..
    The soaked granules can also be made as an idly batter(with more curd)with soda uppu,reglar uppu and mild temperings,steamed up as Idlys!!:)
    The microwave version here is something I am going to try next! :)

  23. Hi Raji,
    the recipe might be known to many people but doing it in the MW is very new to people like me. From the looks it dosen't look any different from the stove-top made ones. I'll surely try this.
