Wheat Rava Upma | Broken Wheat Upma | Cracked Wheat Upma | Sambha Godhumai Rava Uppuma

Wheat Rava Upma | Broken Wheat Upma | Cracked Wheat Upma is  a healthy, filling breakfast and can be made in minutes. Normally I go for this when I don’t have idli batter or feeling bored of making something laborious. I prefer white rava upma over Samba Godumai Rava Upma but the latter is healthier and hence I changed my mind to make this once in a while. This is very good for diabetic people as it helps to start the day with a filling breakfast and those who are on diet can also go for this recipe since the sambha godhumai is rich in fibre.

Broken Wheat Rava – 1 cup
Water – 2 ½ cups
Onion (finely chopped) – ½ cup
Ginger (finely chopped) – 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
For seasoning:
Oil – 2 tbsp
Mustard – 1 tsp
Bengal gram dhal (Kadalai Paruppu) – 2 tbsp
Red chillies – 2 to 3 Nos
Curry leaves – few

Dry roast the rava in a kadai in simmer  until you get a nice aroma and keep it aside.
In a heavy bottomed kadai or Non-stick pan, pour oil and season the items given one by one “for seasoning”.
Then add ginger and sauté for a while. Add onion and sauté till it becomes translucent.
Add water and bring it to rolling boil.
Then add roasted rava and cook in high flame until the upma thickens.
Mix well, simmer the flame and cook for about 5 minutes by covering with a lid and stirring in between.
Open the lid and cook until you get the upma consistency as shown in the pic.

Your healthy breakfast is ready to serve with any chutney of your choice! I like Coconut chutney with this Godhumai Rava  Upma.

  • The water measurement I have given above will give a non-sticky upma and this consistency tastes the best for Wheat Rava Upma unlike the regular white rava upma. If you like it mushy, you can add 3 cups of water.
