Buckwheat Rice Upma

#BuckwheatRiceUpma : When #buckwheat is cooked it becomes slightly sticky and gooey in texture. So I combined with rice to make a tasty upma. This experiment was successful. The taste of  upma was very good and upma color was slightly pinkish because of buckwheat. Now let me present that recipe here.
