Upma is not what my family would eagerly await for breakfast, but when they tasted this, the reaction was totally different. They wanted another helping.......I am so happy i tried this, very tasty
Intake of barley helps us to maintain your overall health in the long term. These whole grains are rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and amino acids essential for our health. Barley is one of the richest sources of both soluble and insoluble fiber, so gives me all the reasons to cook this regularly
Barley 1 cup
Mustard 1 tsp
Black gram dal 1 tsp
Asafoetida a pinch
Green chillies 2( finely cut without the seeds)
Soak the barley for 8 to 10 hours
Cook the barley in the cooker( i cooked it till 5 whistles)
Cut all the vegetables finely
In a pan take 2 tsp oil and add mustard seeds, ural dal, chillies .
When the mustard splutters add onions, capsicum,carrot, beans and tomato and fry till for few minutes
Now add the cooked barley
Add the required amount of salt and squeeze a lemon in it and cook it for another 5 minutes with the lid closed.
Garnish with curry leaves and coriander leaves
Tasty barley upma which is very healthy is ready to be served
Sending this upma to KIRAN'S CWF WHOLE GRAINS-BARLEY EVENT
