Add al the it must be of flowing consistency.

Now heat a tawa or pan.

Enjoy it with curd and chatney.

This is a very healthy breakfast for me and I like it also, almost no oil is used and it has lots of vegetables. and not much cooking even.


1cup broken wheat

250 gm cabbage..julienned

1small capsicum..julienned

1 carrot grated

1 tsp. oil
1tsp. mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp. turmeric

1/2 tsp salt or as you like it

1/2 lemon

2 tbsp. roasted peanuts.

Green chilli(optional)

coriander leaves..finely chopped for garnishing.

Dry roast the broken wheat, till it is golden.

In a pan put oil, and when it is hot add mustard seeds.

When they start spluttering add all the vegetables.

saute them for 5-8 minutes, till they get shiny or loose water.

Keep them aside.

Now cook the broken wheat with 2 cup water, turmeric and salt, slow the fire and cook till all the water is absorbed.

Mix the vegetables in this.

Now while serving spread some peanuts and then sprinkle lemon.
TIPS:.....even you can roast the wheat in microwave also, you will have to stir it once or twice.
Some people add tomatoes also, but I dont because my H doesnt like them in this:)
