Broken wheat upma / Godhumai rava upma

It was another long weekend for us in India. Preparing Breakfast for the weekend will be a big challenge for me, as i wake up (very) late. i need to prepare breakfast other than easy kanji/porridge, cornflakes. Many times, it used to idli-corriander chutney. my puttu maker got a worst shape after its bad time with my son, bcoz of which i could not prepare our favourite puttu, which we normally used to have on week-ends.

Cracked Wheat Upma / Khichdi

This Cracked Wheat Khichdi is one we both love, also i find it easy to prepare. it also tastes different from upma. and a healthy break-fast.



Ingredients:

1. Cracked Wheat / Godhumai Ravai - 2 cup
2. Oil - 2 tbsp's + 1 tsp
3. Cardamon stick - 1' inch
4. Cloves - 2
5. Red Onion - 2
6. Chopped Vegetables - 1 cup (Carrot, Green Peas)
7. Water - 3 cup's
8. Green Chilli's - 2 (slitted vertically)

Method:

Heat a Pan, add a tsp of oil and heat it. Roast the Cracked Wheat for about 3-4 minutes / or when you could see a slight colour change in the rava. let it cool.

Boil the 3 cup's of water along with chopped vegetables.

Heat 2 tbsp's of oil in a pan, add cardamon, cloves and fry them for half a minute.
- add the chopped onion's and fry them till they turn half-translucent.
- add slitted green chilli's and saute it along with onions.
- add salt to taste.
- add the roasted cracked wheat and mix with the onion and chilli.

Lower the flame.

Add carefully the Boiling water with vegetables to the cracked wheat on the pan.
- stir well.
- add a tsp of oil and mix well.
- let the khichdi get thick.
- close the pan with a lid and rest the khichdi in low flame for about 3 minutes.
- add chopped corriander leaves as garnish and switch off the flame.
- close the pan and do not disturb it for another 3 minute's.



Dalia Khichdi

Serve it with chutney powder / idly milagaai podi or with sugar or with coconut chutney.

My choice is with chutney powder.
