Rava upma is a south Indian breakfast recipe. It is a simple food and it can be made in a jiffy. This is usually eaten with sugar or even you can have this with chutney. You can also try variations in this by adding vegetables to make vegetable upma or even omit the tomato and cook. I had left over bread at home. So I fried them and added to the upma.
