Cracked Wheat: Fast To cook, Good To Eat

Cracked Wheat with Tomato
On March 24, I had flu in the evening. I felt so drowsy after tablets, make me so tired and sleepy. Dont know what to cook for dinner. Thinking, thinking, thinking, I want to cook some simple and eloborate meal for tonight dinner. Upma is very simple to cook and some varieties of upma will not satisfy us fully. Atleast, I choosed to cook the cracked wheat#2 with tomato. This cracked wheat is little bigger than creacked wheat #1. Some of you may like it or not. We simply love to eat it with banana, sugar and pickle. Whenever I get mood and want to changes from tomato or few mixed veggies or only peas to plain upma only with chopped onion.
Oh, it's getting cold in our house when the weather is very warm outside, it'll be warm when the weather is hot outside and it'll be hot when it's very hot outside. I wonder the temperature inside and outside keep changing. In the same way, when you eat this upma as soon as it's cooked and you'll feel warm inside ur body. Isn't it that amazing?

2 cups Cracked wheat#2
1 cup Vermicelli/Semiya
6 cups water
1 big onion chopped finely
5 green chilies slit open
1 stick curry leaves
1 small tomato
4 garlic chopped finely
Salt to taste

2 tbsp Oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1 tbsp urad dal
1 tbsp chana dal
1/4 tsp Asafetida/Hing

Heat oil in a big kadai. Do the above seasonings. Add garlic, green chilies, curry leaves and fry till soft. Add onion and fry till golden brown. Add tomato and let it cook for 5 minutes till it turns pulpy and releases its juice. Add water and salt and bring to boil. Check salt to taste. Finally add cracked wheat and semiya. Mix well and close the lid. Let it cook for 8 to 10 minutes in medium low flame. Serve hot.
It's ok if it burnt little and it gives crunchy and chewy taste. Try it out and enjoy it.
