Broken wheat Upma
This is for BM #48 Week 3, day 3 under the theme ‘Nasta time’. Broken wheat or Godhumai rava upma is a simple recipe. You can have it as a breakfast or tiffin or for dinner.
Broken wheat – 1 cup
Water – 1.5 cups
Mustard seeds – 1tsp
Chana dhal – 1 tsp
Urad dhal – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – few
Green chillies – 2- 3 depending on the spice.
Coconut – 1 – 2 tbsp. (optional) – I used the frozen one
Onions - ½ cup diced (optional)
Salt – as per taste
Dry roast the broken wheat in a pan (Note if it is already roasted broken wheat, you can skip this) and keep it aside.
Take little oil in a pan and do the seasoning with mustard seeds , urad dhal , chana dhal and add the curry leaves. Add green chillies (note: Add onions now if you are using it and fry for some time)
Add 1.5 cup water and add the required amount of salt and boil it. Once the water boils, Add the broken wheat and mix it and switch off the stove.
Transfer the mixture into a bowl and pressure cook for 2 whistles. Add Coconut and mix it well and Serve it with chutney or sambhar.
I served the upma with sambhar.
Note: I usually do not add vegetables for this upma but you can add mixed vegetables along with onions and make this upma. (Add little more water if you are adding the vegetables)
