Wheat Rava Upma !

This upma is an easy one pot meal and so healthy with loads of veggies. Served with just pickle or chutney its a perfect option for breakfast or dinner. It  can be made in a Kadai too but I prefer in cooker as just pop everthing in cooker and with right amount of water your upma is ready in a whistle. perfectly cooked.

INGREDIENTS (No Onion No Garlic)

  • 1 cup Wheat Rava / Bombay Rava / Broken Wheat / Daliya
  • 2 cups chopped veggies (carrot, peas, potato, beans etc)
  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
  • 1/2 tsp Jeera (Cumin Seeds)
  • 1 tbsp Channa Dal
  • 3 Green Chillis
  • 2 tbsp Ground nuts
  • 1 piece ginger (cut into juliennes)
  • 3 cups water
  • salt as needed
  • 2 - 3 tbsp chopped coriander
  • juice of 1/2 lime.

  • Chop the veggies into small chunks.
  • Roast the rava with few drops of oil for 3 - 4 minutes until it is roasted well.
  • In a cooker heat oil and then mustard seeds and once thehy crackle, add cumin seeds.

  •  Add green chillis and channa dal (i forgot to add) and ground nuts.
  • Once the channa dal browns, add the veggies and saute for 2 - 3 minutes.

  •  Add water and let it come to a boil.
  • Add in the ginger and peas and enough salt and little turmeric powder. 

  •  Now add the chopped coriander and the roasted rava slowly mixing it on the other hand without any lumps.

  •  Close the cooker and cook for just one whistle.
  • Let the pressure release on its own and then open the cooker,
  • Squeeze lime juice and give a mix. Serve hot.


  • Wheat rava generally takes more time to cook than normal rava. SO I prefer cooking in pressure cooker.
  • Add veggies as per your choice. Sometimes I even throw in some cabbage and broccoli too.
  • You can also cook in a kadai closing it with lid.
  • Use any type of wheat rava, its also called samba rava or bombay rava. OR the bigger granules of it called daliya ot Broken wheat.
  • Serve with pickle or chutney of your choice.
