Upma with Wheat Semolina

Whenever I feel like making Upma, S asks me is it the wheat one? :) I like the Upma with fine sooji and he likes it with cracked wheat. You can guess what I make it with .......obviously with cracked wheat huh......;)

Its very simple and easy to make so, mix and match with whatever veggies you have.

Serves - 2 people
Cooking and Preparation Time -20 mins approx

Ingredients :

Cracked Wheat - 1 cup
Onion  - 1 medium finely chopped
Carrots - 1/2 cup chopped ( also can add peas, corn etc)
Tomato - 1 chopped
Green chillies - 2 slit
Coriander - 1/4 cup chopped
Few Mint leaves (optional)

Urad Dal or Chana Dal - 1 tbsp
Cumin, Mustard seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Peanuts - 1/4 cup
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tbsp optional
Oil - 2-3 tbsp
Water - 2 cups approx
Method :
  1. Heat oil in a pan, add peanuts, chana dal, cumin, mustard seeds. Once, peanuts, chana dal turns slightly red color and the mustard starts to splutter add chopped onions, carrots, turmeric powder, ginger, curry leaves, chopped coriander, green chillies, mint leaves and saute.
  2. Add tomato, salt and saute.
  3. When tomatoes become mushy add water and bring it boil.
