Godhumai Uppuma

Though our staple dinner fare is Idli or Dosa, we would wait for the day when the batter will get over to have Uppuma. Be it Rice Uppuma or Wheat; we love to have it Tomato Pachadi any time of the week for dinner. It really is a mouthwatering and delicious treat - not to be missed!
For Uppuma, curds is one accompaniment that Aaya (my Grandmother) loved to have. 

Wheat Rava - 1 cup
Water - 2.5 cups
Oil - 2 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon
Mustard - 1/4 teaspoon
Urad Dal - 1/4 teaspoon
Channa Dal - 1/4 teaspoon (optional)
Jeera - 1/4 teaspoon
Curry Leaves - 1 sprig
Dry Red Chilli - 2, broken into bits
Onion - 1, small
Tomato - 1, small
Green Peas - 1/3 cup

Finely chop onions and tomatoes.
Bring water to a rolling boil. Simmer.
Heat oil and splutter mustard, urad dal, jeera, curry leaves and dry red chillies.
Add in onions and saute until transparent. Add chopped tomato and saute for a minute.
Add green peas, simmering water, salt and a pinch of sugar.
Lower flame and add the wheat Rava, stirring continuously.
Simmer cook undisturbed until the water is fully absorbed.
Spoon a teaspoon of oil around the edges of the pan.
Close the pan and cook over a very low flame for 3 minutes. The wheat should be soft, and fluffy.
Relish with Sambhar / Coconut Chutney / Tomato Pachadi / Podi / Sugar?
