Broken wheat Uppma / Godhumai Rava uppma

A very healthy uppma which can be made in half an hour's time. I always have a packet of Broken wheat in my pantry to make this delicious recipe whenever I turn up late from office.. We usually have this with coconut chutney which makes a yummy combination but @ times I make some crunchy deep fried snacks like my Crispy fried cauliflower to go with it and we love this combo too… I learnt this uppma from my MIL who makes this very often. Thanks to her for teaching such a healthy recipe.

Making certain dishes does not drain your energy especially when you are out of it and at the same time are packed with flavors and nutrients. Such simple and healthy recipes need to be bagged and kept in a corner of your mind, never to be forgotten but to be used, tried, relished, shared and passed down generations. I am sharing one such recipe which was passed down by my MIL and which has come handy to me on days of after-hours @ office.

~*What U Need*~
Broken Wheat – 1 cup
Chopped veggies (carrot & beans) – ½ cup
Chopped onions – 1 cup
Green chilli – 1 or 2
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Urad dhal – 1 tsp
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Toasted peanuts – a handful (optional)
Water – 2 cups
Oil – 2 tbsp
Salt – as needed

How I Made It:
Heat oil and add the mustard seeds and allow to splutter. Add the urad dhal and fry till brown. Next add the curry leaves and green chilli and fry well.
Add the chopped onions and sauté till transparent.
When done, add the chopped veggies and salt and fry till half done.
Now add the water and bring it to boil.
The ratio of rava to water is 1:1 1/2 i.e., for 1 cup of rava use 1 1/2 cups of water. Boil the water till veggies have cooked.
When done add in the broken wheat rava and mix well. Close the pan with the lid and allow it to cook for 5 mins. Stir in between. Cook till most of the water has evaporated and the rava granules are not sticky.

Mix in the toasted peanuts and serve with coconut chutney or dishes of ur choice.

So thats it Folks...
With Love,
