Broken Wheat Vegetable Upma

Broken_Wheat_Vegetable_Upma_1 Broken wheat is also called as ‘wheat rava’ and ‘bulgur wheat’. Broken wheat is a good source of dietary fiber. Whole wheat is cleaned, par-boiled, dried and ground according to size to make it as wheat rava. As wheat rava is not refined/polished, it retains its full nutritive value. Broken wheat is a good source of manganese, thiamine, niacin iron, zinc and carbohydrates. You can make upma, pongal etc with this.

Here I prepared upma with broken wheat and vegetables.

Roasting the wheat rava is to avoid stickiness in upma.
