Wheat Dalia Upma

Here's yet another upma variant. Wheat dalia or bulgur replaces rava in this easy recipe. Sometimes you realize that healthy eating needn’t necessarily mean tasteless food.

1 cup Wheat Dalia
1 Onion, sliced
1 tsp Oil
1 tsp Cumin Seeds
¼ tsp Mustard Seeds
7-8 Curry Leaves
½ tsp Chilli Flakes
1 tsp Green Chilli paste
1 tsp Ginger Paste
Salt to taste

Heat the oil in a kadhai. Add the mustard, cumin and asafoetida. When the mustard splutters, add the curry leaves, onions, ginger and chilli pastes and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the dalia and fry the entire mixture for 3-4 minutes. Add 2 cups of boiling hot water and salt to this. Mix well, cover and cook for 5-7 minutes on a low flame.

Enjoy it as a snack or a light meal. You could team it up with dal, sabzi, or sambar and make it a complete meal.

W is for Wheat Dalia. And this is my third W entry to Nupur's A-Z of Indian Vegetables.
