BROKEN WHEAT UPMA RECIPE

                  Broken wheat upma is a usual breakfast recipe, which i make for my in laws everyday, when I was staying them in chennai.  They always prefer to have this upma with vegetables. When they came here to Singapore, i wanted to click the picture of this upma before serving them, but somehow I couldn’t make it. Yesterday I wanted to make something healthy for my dinner, i made this upma for me.

  26. Hi Jeyshree, dont you have to roast the broken wheat? i thought if you dont roast, it becomes sticky?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Hi Vidhya ,
    No need to roast the broken wheat. Normally we do for rava only. It won't be sticky
