Wheat Rava Upma Recipe | Broken(Cracked) Wheat Rava Upma | Dalia /Godhumai Rava Upma

After I started to cook, Jany has tried all the dishes I made except the Upma variety. He never likes upma and after so much struggle, I made him try semiya upma and he is OK with that if I present it with mixed vegetables. However, he doesn't even want to try the Plain Rava Upma which I posted already and this wheat upma. On the other hand, Happy and I love upma to the core. When dad is at home we make wheat upma as dinner for him. We both join him and relish the upma. This is a very simple and easy to make upma with very few ingredients. Off to the detailed preparation steps:

Wheat Rava - 1 Cup 
Water - 2 Cups 
Onion - 1(Chopped lengthwise) 
Green Chilli - 1 
Coconut(grated) - 1/4 cup  
Salt - as required 
To Temper: 
Oil - 2 tsp 
Mustard - 1 tsp 
Curry leaves - 1/2 tsp 
Urad dal - 1/4 tsp
1. Chop the onions and grate the coconut. In a pan, add some oil and allow the mustard seeds, urad dal and curry leaves to crackle.
2. Then add the chopped onions, green chilli and saute it until the onions turn translucent. Now pour 2 cups of water and bring it to a rolling boil.
3. While the water is boiling, spread and pour the rava to cover the entire pan. Don't mix it now, just close it with a lid and turn the flame to very low. Allow it to cook by absorbing the water content for 5 to 7 mins.
4. Now open the pan, the water will be absorbed completely. Give everything a gentle mix and sprinkle the coconut. Mix it again once and switch off the flame.
Serve the delicious and healthy upma with sugar and banana. You can also serve it with coconut chutney. Check my recipe of Plain Rava Upma here.
Points to remember:
  • I like my upma to be grainy and free flowing hence I have added 2 cups. If you prefer it to be gooey then you need more water. Also, amma says for wheat upma it is not required to mix while the rava is cooking like we do for white rava upma. Hence, I have followed her way and allowed the rava to absorb the entire water in low flame by covering it.
  • You can also add vegetables like peas, carrot and beans to make it more nutritious.
  • If you prefer, you can add a half tomato while sauteing the onion. But I prefer mine to be plain hence have not added.
  • I have used the fine variety of wheat rava (which we normally get in shops) which cooks faster. If you get the bigger ones then you need to add 1 more cup of water and it takes few more mins to cook.
Warm Regards,
