Cabbage Cracked Wheat Upma/Upittu

I am a great fan of cracked wheat. I had never tasted it before. However, from the past several months I have been using it regularly. I prepare Cracked Wheat Upma with Cabbage at least 3 times a month.

Cabbage as you all know has many many health benefits. It is also the most cheapest vegetable out there and full of costly nutrients. How about that? :)

To read more about what all nutrients cabbage has take a look here.

Health Benefits of Cabbage.

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups Cracked Wheat
  • 2 cups finely chopped cabbage.
  • 4-5 green chillies.
  • 2 tsp Vangibath powder(Opitonal)
  • 1/4 fresh finely grated coconut
  • 4-5 curry leaves finely chopped
  • 3 tsp finely chopped cilantro
  • Salt to taste
  • sugar to taste
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds, 1 tsp channa dal, 1 tsp urad dal, 1/2 tsp turmeric, pinch of hing for seasoning

Method:

First, in a non stick pan or any deep vessel fry the cracked wheat continuously until it turns golden brown. Make sure it doesn’t burn out. Transfer this onto a plate.

Next, add 2 tsp oil. When it is hot enough add all the seasoning ingredients one after another. Add green chillies and curry leaves also. Add the cabbage and 3 cups of water and cover. Let this boil until the cabbage is cooked. Now add the Vangibath powder, salt, sugar. Once this boils as well, slowly add the cracked wheat. While you are adding cracked wheat, make sure there are no lumps, so keep stirring continuously. It should look watery when you have added all the cracked wheat.

Now, cover the vessel, and cook on slow fire for another 15-20 minutes, once the rava is cooked, add coconut, finely chopped cilantro and lemon juice.

Serve with chatnipudi and yoghurt. Enjoy.

    Meera, I make dishes out of cracked wheat when I get tired of making chapati. I always make bisibelebhath or uppittu with lots of veggies…my kids love that. Payasa also comes out well :-))
