Godhumai Rava Upma - Wheat Rava Upma

I haven't heard of wheat rava until I got married. Even after that I was not aware of the recipe and I did not take interest in learning that too. Once my sis was telling me the benefits of this wheat rava and only then I was attracted towards it. Then I learnt the recipe from her and now it is one of the regular breakfast recipes in our home. Pressure cooking this makes the work much easier and faster!


Wheat Rava - 1 cup
Onion - 1
Green chilli - 1 or 2, slit lengthwise
Vegetable of your choice - carrot, beans, green peas(soaked), cabbage etc
Water - 2 cups
Salt, hing as per taste

To temper

Oil, mustard seeds, channa dal and curry leaves as per taste

  1. Heat oil in a pressure cooker, do the tempering and then add green chilli and then onion and saute until it turns translucent.
  2. Then add all the vegetables one by one, saute for a minute. Add hing, salt and water and allow bring it to a boil. 
  3. Then add the wheat rava, close the lid and pressure cook for one whistle and simmer for 2-3 mins. Once the pressure releases give a quick stir. Serve hot. 
  4. This doesn't require any side dish, can be had as such. Also tastes good with coconut chutney or any pickle of your choice.
