Broken wheat upma

Upma is the last thing i'd  have when given an option and the first thing i want to make if i do not have any breakfast options :) (sounds mean) but its so easy to make if nothing else is available.My DH a lover of all vegetables,loves his upma with mixed vegetables, alas, if only i could get one spoon ful into my LM's mouth nope she's totally against vegetables!

I have picked this recipe for the blog hop wednesday i missed in january due to several reasons.I had to hop Madhavi's blog and picked this healthy and easy recipe.

For a long time, my upma used to be as hard as a rock now i know the reason for that.I used the incorrect quantity of water.

To make this easy upma you need,

Broken wheat 1 cup(/normal sooji/rawa)
Water 3 cups
Curry leaves 1 sprig
Baby onions 5-6 chopped finely
Green chillies 1 chopped finely
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Chana dal 1 tsp
Urad dal/black lentils 1 tsp
Oil/ghee to temper 1 tablespoon
Mixed vegetables (beans,carrot,peas) 1 cup (or much as you like)(add any vegetable of your choice)
Coriander/cilantro leaves to garnish

  • Dry roast the broken wheat/big brown rawa in a pan until it turns a bit brown(its already reddish brown in color)
  • Heat oil in a pan, add the mustard seeds let it pop, then add the onions,green chillies and curry leaves.
  • Next add the chana dal and urad dals and fry well.
  • Add the vegetables and let them cook until soft.
  • Now add chilli powder and salt to taste and fry this for a few seconds.
  • Next add the water required for the rawa and start stirring slowly and add the fried rawa into this.
  • Check for salt and cover this and let it cook.
  • Upma is ready when all the water is soaked up and the rawa swells up well.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.

  • Serve hot with chutney or yogurt.
