Broken Wheat Upma

#BrokenWheatUpma  #GodhumaiUpma  : We have already seen the preparation of Rice Upma and Kodo millet upma. Here let me present you the method of preparation of #Brokenwheat upma. Upma prepared with the given ingredients is just enough for 2 persons.

Ingredients :

1 Cup                                     Broken wheat
2 Tsp                                     Salt
1                                            Onion, nicely chop
3 or 4                                     Green chilly, slit lengthwise
10 or 12                                 Curry leaves
1 Tsp                                      Ginger nicely chopped

Other nicely chopped Vegetables :
1 Tbsp                                     Carrot
1 Tbsp                                     Cabbage ( Optional )
1 Tbsp                                     Capsicum ( Optional )
1 Tbsp                                      Green Peas

To Temper :
1 Tsp                                      Mustard seeds
1 Tsp                                      Black gram ( Urad Dhal )
3 Tsp                                      Gram dhal
1 small piece                           Asafoetida ( Perungayam - Hing )
3 Tsp                                      Oil

Method :
Keep a heavy bottomed vessel or kadai on a stove with slow flame.
Add oil and crackle mustard seeds.
Then add asafoetida piece and dhals. Allow the dhal to become golden color.
Now add curry leaves and green chillies.
Saute for 1/2 minute and then add onion.
Saute onion until it turns to pale pink color.
Now add cabbage and carrots.
Keep stirring with a ladle for a minute.
Then add capsicum and green peas. Saute for 1/2 minute and then add 2 cups of water and salt.

Keep the fire at HIGH and add washed broken wheat when water started boiling.
Now reduce the fire and keep the vessel closed with a lid.
Allow to cook till the broken wheat become soft. It takes around 10 minutes to cook.

Keep stirring at regular intervals and close the lid.
Now the upma is ready.

Serve hot with coconut chutney or any chutney of your choice or pickle.
I like to have with jaggery.
