Suji Gothambu Upma | Cracked Wheat(Dalia) Upma

Cracked wheat(suji gothambu) upma is one upma with lots of health benefits.Cracked wheat is rich in fiber and is a low glycemic food,also a good source of iron.This upma was relished by me as toddler(long back).Anganwadi(read more here)used to serve this upma for the young kids and pregnant ladies in our native place.And our Anganwadi was adjacent to our home in Kerala.During our vacation trips to Kerala,the anganwadi aunty served this for us.We(me & my cousins) used to happily devour it with some sprinkled sugar,totally loved it.That's how cracked wheat or suji gothambu was introduced to me.But they make it plain with no added veggies as far as I remember.Now,knowing all the health benefits I have introduced this to my family too.Adding a few veggies and made it more tastier.My elder one just loves having this tasty upma,Do try & enjoy this upma my way !!

Sorry about the pics,was taken in the night and lighting was poor.Will update new pics as I make more:)
