Wheat Rava Upma Kozhakottai

BM #64 Week 1 Day 3 - 

For the third day of cooking with whole wheat, check out this filling snack. I intended to make this with cracked wheat only to realize in the last minute that I was out of cracked wheat. So I had to settle with wheat rava.

Ingredients - 
Wheat Rava / Cracked Wheat 1 1/2 cups
Salt and Turmeric as needed
Water 2 cups
Almonds coarsely crushed 2 Tbsp
Seasoning (Oil 1 Tbsp, Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp, Chana Dal 1 tsp, Urad Dal 1 tsp, Cumin Seeds 1/2 tsp, Asafotida a pinch)
Soak and Coarse Grind -
Chana Dal 1/4 cup
Red Chilies 1-2
Wheat Rava Upma Kozhakottai

Method Of Preparation -

Soak the chana dal and red chili for an hour and coarsely grind adding as little water as needed. Set aside.

Dry roast the wheat rava until aromatic. Set aside.

In a heated pan, add oil and the rest of the seasoning ingredients.

Add the coarsely ground chana dal and saute for a few seconds.

Add in salt and turmeric and water.

After the water comes to a rolling boil, add the roasted wheat rava.

Mix well, cover and reduce heat. Let it cook for a couple of minutes.

Remove from fire. Allow it to cool a little so it is easy to handle.

While it is still hot, pinch big lime portions of the mixture and shape into an oblong. Set aside and continue to make more oblong shapes of the mixture.

Place all of the oblong shapes in a steamer and steam for about 8-10 min.

Remove and serve with a chutney of your choice.
