Recipe Source: My sister Jayanthi
This recipe is very diabetic friendly as it offers more protein and complex carbs than your regular rava/semiya upma.
My sister substitutes buttermilk for 1 cup of the water - so she uses 1 cup buttermilk + 2 cups water for 1 cup of dalia. I haven't tried it, but if you love buttermilk, you would probably love the tang it provides.
Do not skip/skimp on the ginger, as it flavors the upma wonderfully. So do the green chilies, but then I could be biased - I love green chilies in anything.
Try not to skip the coconut either.
Together, the ginger, coconut and the chilies flavor this dish and elevate it from a blah upma to a delicacy!
