Tired? Don't feel like making rice/rotis and an entire meal? Here's a quick dish that is light, both physically as well as physiologically. Yes, you guessed it. I am back with another variant of my darling: upma. If you have mixed vegetables in the freezer like I usually do, this meal can be whipped up very quickly.
1 cup Broken Wheat (Dalia)
1 Onion, chopped
1 cup Mixed vegetables, chopped and cooked (I used carrots, peas, potatoes and beans)
1 tbsp Oil
1/2 tsp Urad Dal
1/2 tsp Chana Dal
1/4 tsp Mustard Seeds
1/4 tsp Asafoetida
7-8 Curry Leaves
1 Red Chilli
¼ tsp Turmeric Powder
1 tsp Green Chilli paste
1 tsp Ginger Paste
Salt to taste
Coriander Leaves for garnish
Heat the oil in a kadhai. Add the urad and chana dals. When the urad dal begins to brown a little, add the mustard and asafoetida. When the mustard splutters, add the curry leaves, onions, red chilli, ginger and chilli pastes and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the turmeric powder and fry for a minute more. Add the mixed vegetables and the broken wheat and fry the entire mixture for 1-2 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.Mix well, garnish with coriander leaves and enjoy it as a snack or a light meal.

Upma with dalia sounds yummy.. I ma not an upma person but love to have it with veggies in it..
I love upma and I love dalia, but somehow the combination has never enthused me...so I make it like a khichdi for breakfast, saute it with veggies and a bit of moong dal - pressure cook the whole thing together and Yummy breakfast ready!
The bay leaf in your recipe seems like it takes the upma to a really nice level!
Thanks Raaga, I recently hit upon ur blogspot, when I was looking for different Salad varities. I am amazed by the variety of dishes you have under each category.
I added peanuts to this recipe and pressure cooked the dalia instead for 10 minutes along with the vegetables. It turned out great and hubyy liked it for the first time!!
