Cracked Wheat Upma

Upma is always a simple breakfast, easy to prepare and a comforting food. There are so many varieties of Upma. We, south indians can make Upma out of anything I guess :). I tried this simple Cracked wheat upma for breakfast today. I prepared it for the first time and did similarly like the sooji or oats upma. It came out good and now this will be a frequent breakfast for us :).

Check out my other upma recipes: 




What you need?

1 cup Cracked Wheat
1/2 of an Onion chopped
1/2 cup Vegetables of your choice (I used carrots, corn, peas n beans)
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
1/2" pc Ginger finely chopped
2 Green chillies chopped
3-4 Curry leaves chopped
2 cups Water
1 tsp Oil
Salt

How to prepare?

Dry roast the cracked wheat for a few minutes until the colour changes to slight brown and a nice aroma comes. Keep aside the roasted cracked wheat.

Heat oil in the same pan. Splutter mustard and cumin seeds. Add curry leaves, ginger and green chillies. Saute for a minute. Add onions and saute until they turn pink.Now add the veggies and cook them. Once veggies are also cooked, pour the water into the pan and add salt. When water starts boiling, reduce the flame. Now slowly add the cracked wheat and keep on stirring while you add. Cover and cook until the water dries up and the wheat is cooked completely. Serve hot with sambhar or chutney.


Notes:
*If you want the wheat to be very soft and a little mushy, add a little more than 2 cups water.
*You can use the fine wheat variety too.
*Garnish with some coconut or coriander leaves.
*You can also add some peanuts or cashews before adding onions and roast them.
