Soya Semiya Delight

Semiya Coconut Milk Upma

Soya Semiya Delight

I have tried several semiya recipes like tomato sevai, semiya upma, lemon sevai etc. This recipe is made using coconut milk so will have coconut flavor. This dish came out well. We had it for tiffin. The soya chunk and coconut milk combination have worked out well. Believe me, you cannot have enough of it.
