Cracked wheat upma/dalia upma

We were so into parties and travels; it seemed like fun, but now all I am left with is little-to-no health. It feels so different to be away from routine. Yeah, I know everyone needs to liven up oneself – refreshing and nourishing works to be done. But too much of anything is not good ......right fellas…..So after back-to-back travels and Abbey’s b’day parties, I feel I am not fitting into the niche of a homemaker. 
Oh my God! cupboards are all disorganized. Lots of cleaning and organizing to be done. Hope I will be back to square one soon. 

When home is not organized and less chi flowing, it is hard to think straight and right….I am short of ideas….Good Lord help me….Gail is in bed fast asleep. Well, new Mommie is trying to make life easy and I am afraid new mommie tag  will be taken off  soon as Gail is officially declared 2 and making excuses will be impossible from now on. 

So back to kitchen for some easy peasy wheat upma.  

Broken wheat/Dalia - 1 cup
Onion - 1 medium
Green chillies - 3 nos
Ginger chopped - 1 small piece
Vegetables, (fresh or frozen) (carrots, beans, peas, and corn) - 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Curry leaves

Pressure cook broken wheat/dalia till one whistle.
Heat oil in a pan, crackle mustard seeds followed by urad dal. Saute onion, green chillies, and ginger. When the onion turns translucent, add frozen vegetables. Close the lid, lower the flame, and allow the steam to pass through the vegetables. (If you are using fresh veggies, give more time to cook). When the vegetables are cooked, add cracked wheat, which is already cooked. Mix well.

Serve hot with a dollop of ghee, coriander leaves, and grated coconut. Add some pomegranate kernels if you have all the time in the world, believe me..... it tastes too good.
