Upma is an ideal food for yoga practitioners when consumed in moderate quantity. Favorable for all constitutions and is tridhātu sāmya, balancing all doshas. Upma can also be served as a light food on half fasting days. Serve fresh and hot, as it will become heavier to digest after cooling. If using more than once a week, omit the nuts, which may cause sleep disturbance.
Use heaped measurements except when stated otherwise.
