Corn and Carrot Upma Recipe

Upma or Upeet as you know is very common breakfast in south India and Maharashtra. Upma is prepared by using semolina and other veggies for seasoning.Most commonly used veggies are green peas,carrots. Upma is also prepared just plain by just seasoning of curry leaves and mustard ( plain upma recipe). In this recipe i tried using sweet corn and carrots ,sweet flavour of corns also gives great taste to any dish.I was not that sure about Upma tasting so great after adding Corns.
