This cute, healthy cereal broken wheat or cracked wheat hadn’t appeared in the space since a while. Because I was taken over by the so called millet vibe and most of my culinary skills acted upon millets. It’s been a trend to use healthy cereals like millets in all delicious food possibilities now. So I was kind of forgotten about the existence of yet another feel-good cereal, delicate and light broken wheat. There were days when I used to store this cracked wheat only for the sake of dessert like kheer or payasam. But my culinary skills too have grown along with the blog and now broken wheat is kind of substitute. Meaning from bisi bele bhath to this broken wheat upma, I can use it for breakfast as well as lunch/dinner.
Whenever your usual upma made out of rava feels unexciting or if you love to feel the bite and crunch then broken wheat upma is the best alternative. Broken wheat isn’t as fine as rava and in every bite you can feel the flavorful wheat in the mouth. On top of that all the veggies like carrot, peas and beans make your mouth full. The vegetables always get more delicious with upma flavors.
I know many people for whom upma isn’t favorite at all. It actually falls beyond their food for hungry curve. Meaning people don’t even taste upma though they feel hungry to the core. This is one such food which tastes overwhelmingly delicious when eaten hot. I love it that way, so I never pack upma for kids lunch box. By the time they open the box, it would have been lost it’s hot flavors and deliciousness. Hence, I prepared broken wheat upma all for myself today and relished it along with a cup of hot tea sitting on my couch. Because breakfasting alone while watching a TV show is good some times.
