Have you been wanting to try something healthier for breakfast and take a break from that boring oatmeal? Don’t worry, we’ve got you!

We have given our normal upma a healthy twist by replacing Rava (semolina) with broken wheat!

Broken wheat rava upma is a staple breakfast in South Indian homes. It is also known as cracked wheat or samba rava and is called ‘Godhuma Rava’ in Telugu. Broken wheat (Dalia) is made from a special kind of whole wheat and has high nutritional values including fiber which comes from the husk of the wheat. 

This dish is not only filling but also flavourful and its nutritious value get adds up with the addition of vegetables. Also, as wheat rava (dalia) is not refined, it has more nutrition in it compared to rava (semolina).

Moreover, this steaming hot breakfast dish can be made vegan just by adding oil instead of ghee. And you can have this delish dish with coconut chutney or sambar or even with curd.

What makes an upma recipe really special is that you can add the vegetables and other ingredients as per your liking!
