Broken Wheat Upma with veggies


1 cup broken samba wheat
2 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup mixed vegetables (carrots, beans, peas)
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp blackgram dal
1/2 tsp bengalgram dal
Few curry leaves
Salt to taste
2 green chillies
Finely chopped coriander leaves

Dry roast the broken wheat for 3 to 4 minutes. Heat oil, add the mustard seeds, bengalgram dal, blackgram dal, curry leaves, green chillies and mix well. When it splutters, add the mixed vegetables, broken wheat and 2 1/2 cups of boiling water. Add salt to it and cook on low flame till cooked. It would take longer time than the usual rava to get cooked. It can also be pressure cooked at this stage.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with chutney/sambar.
