3 cups water
2 tbsp oive  oil
1/4 tsp mustard seeds
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp Channa dal
1 tsp udad dal
1 stem curry leaves
2-3 green chillies, chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup mixed vegetables (I use frozen peas, corn, grated carrots and French beans)
1/2" grated fresh ginger (Optional)
Salt to taste

To prepare Daliya Upma / Cracked Wheat Upma with vegitables:

1. Het oil in a small pressure cooker and add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds. When they pop, add channa dal, udad dal and saute for a while, then add onions, green chillies, grated ginger and curryleaves and saute until the onions turn transparent (about 2-3 mins). 
2. Next, add the vegetables and 3 cups water. Bring to boil.
3. Add salt and the broken wheat in a slow trickle, stirring as you do this. Once you have added all the broken wheat close the lid and pressure cook for 3-4 whistles. Wait till the steam from pressure cooker subsides.
4. Serve it with any chutney of your choice 
or even with curd it goes well.


Tips / Notes:

·        U can cook Daliya Upma without using pressure cooker but u need to Stir frequently and cook until all the water has been absorbed and the upma comes together, soft and fluffy. Pop some of the wheat in your mouth to see if its soft. If not, add more water and keep stirring until its fully done.
·        But I prefer this method for fast process and no need to stand in front of stove for long time.
