Broken Wheat(Lapsi) Vegetable Masala Pulao

Print Friendly and PDF
This can be prepared either for breakfast,lunch or dinner as this is a very healthy one pot dish which is high in fibre,vitamin and complex carbohydrates and is also a great dish for diabetic people.Generally broken wheat is used in making dalia(porridge), kheer and upma.This version is bit unusual from the regular upma as this includes the spices and is loaded with lots of vegetables which makes it still healthier.

Ingredients:
1 cup broken wheat or Lapsi
1 onion,roughly chopped

1 small carrot,diced into 1/4"
cubes
5-6 french beans,threaded and cut into 1/4" pieces

1 small potato,diced into 1/4" cubes
2-3 cauliflower florets,cut into thin pieces
1/4 cup green peas

1/2 tsp cumin seeds

juice of 1 small lemon
salt to taste

1 tsp ghee
3 tsp oil
2 1/2 cups of water

To grind:
1/2 cup coriander leaves
1/4 cup mint leaves

4-5 green chillies

3/4" ginger
2-3 garlic pods

3-4 cloves
1/2 " cinnamon

1 green cardamom


For garnish:
2 tbsp chopped coriander
1 tbsp grated coconut(optional)

Method:
  • Heat a tsp of oil in a kadai and fry broken wheat until light brown in color.Let it cool and keep aside.
  • Grind cloves,cinnamon,cardamom to a coarse powder.Add ginger,garlic and green chillies to it and blend again.
  • Add coriander and mint leaves and grind to a coarse paste.
  • Heat 2tsp oil and 1 tsp ghee in a thick bottomed pan or pressure cooker and crackle cumin seeds.
  • Add chopped onions and fry until they are translucent.Add all the vegetables one by one and fry them for 3-4 mins.
  • Add ground masala paste and fry until dry and add the measured water and let it come to a boil and add enough salt and broken wheat and mix well and cook it covered for 4-5 mins until the broken wheat is cooked.If you are using pressure cooker,pressure cook it for 1 whistle.
  • Once you open the lid add lemon juice and coriander and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander and grated coconut.
Serve it hot with vegetable or simple onion raita ,papad and salad.

Note:
  • For a Vegan version avoid ghee in the recipe.
