Vegetable Dalia Upma | Godhumai Rava Upma Recipe | Broken Wheat Upma | Tiffin Recipes by Masterchefmom

Vegetable Upma

Hi Supermoms,

Thank God it's Friday !

I am sure you are all looking forward to a relaxed weekend just like me😀. Though I work from home, it is actually more challenging than a full time job. From answering the door bells, cooking three meals a day,  doing all the house hold chores and then finding time to sit and work, is multiple times more demanding. 

Before I finish lunch and related work, I am already prepping for dinner. Talking about dinner, today's recipe - The Godhumai Ravai /Rava Upma is a simple and wholesome meal. You can add all the vegetables of your choice.

You can cook this upma in different ways. I have earlier shared the authentic Tam Brahm Style of Godhumai Rava Upma Kozhukattai where I have cooked the Godhumai Rava ( broken wheat) along with the spices . 

Today, I am going to show you how to make this upma in a different way. It saves time and also the vegetables taste better when cooked this way. 

Coconut adds flavour to this healthy Upma.
