Friends, today, i came up with a regualr breakfast variety - Upma. Are you bored of upma? just make it delicious with small changes.
Cracked wheat : 1 cup
Onion : Half medium onion
Green chillies : 4 thai
Cashews : few
Oil : 4 tbsp
Salt : 1 tsp
Water : 1 and half cup
--> Take oil into a pan; let it heat up; Add the tempering ingredients (urad dal, jeera, mustard seeds,curry leaves) and add cashews.
--> Add green chillies.
--> Add chopped onions to the tempering ingredients and cook for 5 mins on medium flame.
--> Let the onions become tender.
--> Add 1 and half cup of water and add 1 tsp of salt.
--> Close the lid of pan and put the flame in medium-hi.
--> let the water comes to bubbling.
--> Now, open the lid and reduce the flame to low. (because, now you need to add the cracked wheat flour)
--> Add the cracked wheat flour with left hand, while stirring it simulatenously with a spatula in right hand.
--> Make the flour mix properly without any lumps. If you got any lumps, try to smash it with spatula pressing towards the pan.
--> now, close the lid and let it cook for 3-5 mins in low flame.
--> Open the lid and stir once again, and take a pinch of upma with a spoon, let it cool down and taste it if it need to be cooked. if it needs, close the lid again and let it cook for couple of minutes.
--> Switch off the flame and sprinkle cilantro and stir it.
--> Serve it in a plate with few sliced lemons.
hope you will enjoy the taste :-)
