My grand mother always created magic while preparing combo upkaries. She always combined all sorts of veggies and prepared upkaries .Still remember the amazing combo they made with hot steaming pej as breakfast . ( Yes, you heard it right .I always loved pej and upkaries as breakfast ) . Gabbo and raw bananas where found abundantly at my home .So this combo upkari was a regular one at my home. So here goes the recipe
