Broken Wheat Upma | Gothumai Rava Upma | Breakfast Recipe

Gothumai Rava Upma, a healthy and delicious breakfast/dinner recipe made from broken wheat. It's one of the easiest tiffin recipes that you can make in a pressure cooker on busy mornings. Unlike regular rava/semolina, broken wheat takes little longer time to cook, so i have used my pressure cooker to quick the process. But you can make this upma in the open pot also.

Depending on the brand, size of the broken wheat & how fluffy or mushy you want, the water quantity may vary. The broken wheat that i got here has bigger granules than the one that i used to make in India. So it takes a couple of tries to figure out how much water it needs to cook to my liking. It needs exactly 2.5 cups of water for 1 cup of broken wheat to cook it perfectly without being mushy. 

In today's recipe, i have used carrots alone in the upma. But you can add beans, peas also along with carrots or even you can make without any veggies, still it tastes great. Personally i like this broken wheat upma more than the regular rava upma because of its texture and the mild chewiness in the broken wheat. Now let's check out how to make this delicious upma in a pressure cooker quickly.
