I have already spoken about the health benefits of Samba Rava / Cracked Wheat / Dalia in my earlier post Jiffy Cracked Wheat Upma. Now, I wanted to add more and more nutrition into this Upma. With loads of vegetables in it, this has become my family favourite now. So, I thought of sharing with you all.

Samba Rava / Cracked wheat - 1 cup
Water - 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 cups
Red bell pepper, mid sized - 1, finely chopped
Green bell pepper , mid sized - 1 , finely chopped
Carrot - 1, grated
Salt to taste
Lemon juice - 2 tsps

For seasoning
Cooking oil - 3 tbsps
Ghee - 2 tsps
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Broken urad dhal - 1 tsp
Channa dhal - 1 tsp
Green chilly - 1, slit 
Red chillies - 3, broken
Ginger, very finely chopped - 1 tsp
Curry leaves , a handful

Recipe Cuisine: South Indian; Category: Breakfast/tiffin variety
Prep time: 10 mts; Cooking time: 10 mts

Serves 2

All vegetables cut and kept ready

In a pressure pan, add cooking oil and add the above mentioned ingredients for seasoning.

                            After the seasoning turn golden, then add chillies and curry leaves

Now add the chopped bell peppers and saute for 2 minutes, keeping the flames on low.

Now add the grated carrots too.

Then add the Samba rava, and salt to taste, Mix well.

Now add the measured water, cover with lid, and cook for 3 whistles.Wait till the pressure releases.

                                              Open the lid, this is how the Upma looks.

Fluff it up with a fork.

Serve hot with any chutney. But we all love with just a cup of plain yogurt.
