Wheat Rava Pulav

Wheat rava or broken wheat is a cereal grain. Its very rich in nutrients. We are generally used to having chapathis or parathas using wheat flour. Off late broken wheat is promoted by doctors so that it can help in reducing diabetes. I also use semolina or wheat rava or broken wheat in my kitchen as frequently as possible.

Here is one recipe to make pulav using broken wheat. I have tried to make this with as little oil as possible. So this would be an ideal recipe for weight watchers.

Wheat rava - 1 cup (150 grams)
Onions - 50 grams
Vegetables - 2 cup (300 grams)
Water - 2 cups
Green chillies - 10 grams
Ginger/Garlic - 10 grams
Oil/Ghee - 25 grams
Garam masala powder - 15 grams
Turmeric and Salt - to taste

Finely chop the onions, green chillies, ginger and garlic.
In a kadai pour oil. Add the ginger/garlic, green chillies and the onions.
Saute until the onions turn brown. Add the vegetables.
Add salt, turmeric powder and garam masala powder.
Add the wheat rava. Fry for about a minute.
Add 2 cups of water. Cover and cook until the water is completely absorbed and the wheat is cooked.
Garnish with coriander leaves.

Wheat rava pulav is ready! Serve with raitha of your choice.
