Here's something you can have it as much as you wish which not only tastes delicious, but adds nutrition to your diet with loads of fiber and wholesome goodness.  My dad loves this upma so much that he could eat it everyday. Mom also stuffs this upma in pesaraatu( moong dal dosa ).. And that adds a special flavor to the dosas..  Checkout the recipe to make this wonder grain upma!!

You need:
  • 1 cup Goduma Ravva ( Cracked whole wheat / wheat germ )
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tomato
  • handful of petite green peas
  • 2-3 green chillies
  • 1 inch ginger root
  • 2-3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp urad dal
  • 1 tsp chana dal
  • 5-10 cashew nuts
  • 10 curry leaves
  • a pinch of turmeric

  • In a saute pan / kadai toas the ravva with very little butter / ghee. Once toasted remove the ravva and keep aside
  • In the same pan add oil, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, cashewnuts, urad dal and chana dal, Once they are toasted add curry leaves, ginger, turmeric, peas and chopped tomato. Stir ans close the lid
  • Once peas and tomatoes are cooked add water and close the lid. When the water bubbles add ravva stirring continuously, lower the heat and close the lid.
  • Check if the whole water has been absorbed and the wheat germ cooked. Adjust salt to taste . Now add some ghee or butter and remove from heat.
