Khara bhath is a variation of Upma/ uppittu. We use vangibath powder and vegetables of your choice to make it more flavorful and healthy breakfast. Here in this recipe I have used brinjal/eggplant as a vegetable.
Serve the khara bhath with kesari bhath like pineapple kesari bhath, mango keasri, or just plain kesari bhath . this combination is popularly called chow chow bhath in south indian restaurants.
