Broken Wheat (Dalia) Upma

Got inspired by my fb friend Sridevi i am trying to eat healthy. Started taking Ragi java (porridge) for breakfast. My mom takes everyday a cup of ragi and when she was here she used to give my younger girl. My younger one loves it and after my mom left i never made it again. Now inspired by Sridevi  i am trying to eat healthy and i stopped eating non-veg. That calls for another post about why i left non-veg. Now coming to today's post, broken wheat upma or godhum rava upma. I have one on my blog and this breakfast is my dad's favorite breakfast. After he passed away we hardly used to make these. I was browsing healthy breakfast recipes and came across it. And then i checked my blog i have masala godhum rava upma. This is quite similar to what i had posted earlier. Here is the recipe:-


Broken Wheat/Godhuma rava 1 cup
Onion 1 chopped
Green  chilles 2
Ginger 1 inch pc chopped
Garlic 1 chopped
Carrots 1 chopped
Peas few
Capsicum 1 chopped
Baby corn few
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder 1/4 tsp

For seasoning

Oil 3 tbsp
Rai/mustard 1/4 tsp
Udad dal 1/2 tsp
Curry leave few


Take a pan with oil. Add the seasoning.

When the seasoning splutters add ginger and garlic paste. Fry for a minute.

Add onions and green chillies. Sprinkle salt.

Fry until onions are light pick colour.

Add all the veggies. Fry for a while.

Then add the broken wheat, cover and cook for 2-3 minutes.

Mix well. Add 3 cups of hot water.

Mix well and place the lid.

Cook until water dries out and wheat is cooked.

Serve hot with any chutney or pickle as per your choice.


  1. I really love the soft, grainy texture of dalia. And upma with all the veggies thrown totally tops my list. Am so glad you are eating healthy Sarita. Now this post is inspiring me to try out some of this for supper :)
