Upma Curd
Curd Rava Upma Recipe

Yogurt (Curd) comes from milk and therefore, it is loaded with several essential nutrients like calcium, vitamin B-2, vitamin B-12, potassium, and magnesium. An advantage with yogurt is that it is light on the stomach and easier to digest than milk.

Semolina (Rava) is rich in iron and can help you prevent its deficiency. Consuming iron-rich foods help in improving blood circulation as well. The presence of calcium makes semolina flour great for boosting bone health.
