Quick and Simple Shavige Upma/Uppittu

Shavige /Semiya is thinner variety of noodles, and it is mostly used in Indian kitchens. Cooking Shavige baat for breakfast is common in South India.
This Shavige Upma/Uppituu/baat is an easy method and you don't have to spend much time in the hectic mornings.

I have used Anil brand Shavige , little jaggery, ghee, oil, rasam powder and vegetable baat powder.
Ready Shavige is available in different sizes and in many brands. I normally use a brand called Anil Shavige which is very comfortable to cook. Preparing Shavige is very easy and you can prepare in many varieties too.
Anil Shavige is prepared using Dhurum Wheat and it helps to provide carbohydrates needed by our body and you stay full for a longer time. Dhurum wheat is said to be filled with fiber and easy to digest.
No Onion or No Garlic Recipe. It is very simple. quick and healthy food.
