Godhuma Rava | கோதுமை உப்மா | Broken Wheat Upma

Godhuma Rava Upma, a healthy breakfast or dinner contains low-fat, low-calorie, high dietary fiber and rich in Iron, Proteins and vitamins. This upma is best suited for diabetic people and people who are interested in weight loss. Also this is one of the simplest and quickest breakfast foods you can prepare. Upma is very versatile and is receptive to so many possible variations.

Ingredients :-
 Godhuma Rava  1 cup 
 Onion (finely chopped)     1
 Tomato (finely chopped) 1 
 Red chillies    4   
 Ginger (minced or grated)    1" piece  
 Oil | ghee  1 tbsp
 Coriander leaves (finely chopped)     few
 Water    2 cups
 Mustard  ¼ tsp
 Urad dal  ½ tsp
 Channa dal   ½ tsp
 Curry leaves  1 sprig
 Salt  to taste

Method :-
1). In the frying pan, add oil first. When it gets heated, add the mustard seeds and let them splutter.                            
2). Add bengal gram, black gram, curry leaves and saute them till the dals turn red and a nice aroma emanates the kitchen.
3. Add the sliced onions, green chillis and ginger and saute for 2 minutes.
4. Add the chopped tomatoes and saute on medium heat for 4minutes.
5. Add salt and water and bring to a boil before adding the wheat rava.
6. Now, reduce heat and slowly add the wheat rava to the water and mix it continuously so that lumps don’t form and it combines well with the water.
7. Cover with lid and let it simmer for 12 minutes. Turn off heat. Combine well. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves. Serve hot. 
8. You can also serve with chutney, sambar, sugar or pickle of your choice.
Tips/Variations :

1. I prepared it with the standard upma seasoning redolent with the fresh flavor of curry leaves and green chillis, and tomatoes being the flavor enhancer. You can also have a citrus-infused upma by adding a tbsp or two of lemon juice and omit the tomatoes.
2. You can use mixed vegetables of your choice like beans, potatoes, carrots, peas.
3.You can also add toasted cashewnuts or roasted peanuts in the upma. I love to have some crunchy groundnuts in the middle.
