corn rava upma recipe | broken corn rava upma with step by step photos and video recipe. Corn rava also known as makai or makka cholam is not known known for its taste but also for its health benefits.
This broken corn rava upma recipe is very simple, easy to make like the regular rava upma. only difference being the time taken to cook the corn rava is little longer than the usual one.
I have tried both the methods of boiling the water and adding the rava also without boiling water. I loved the second version becomes it gives the rava ample time to get cooked. so it tends to be soft and fluffy in texture.
I have added coconut milk to this upma just like how we add cows milk to normal upma. believe me, coconut milk and corn is such an awesome combination. try it yourself and let me know the results.
