Dahlia or Bulgar Wheat is a very nutrituous dish prepared in Indian households.I have a simple version of a upma made with this delicious wheat.

Things required:

1 cup Dahila/Bulgar Wheat

2 cups Water

1 cup diced carrots

1 cup frozen peas

2 green chillies

5 cashews(optional)

salt as per your taste.

Tadka: 1 tbsp oil and 1 tbsp jeera


>In a heavy bottom vessel put 1 tbsp oil and add jeera and green chillies.

>Add the cashews,diced carrots ad peas and saute for 2 mins.

> Add salt and then add the 2 cups of water and bring it to boil...simmer the heat too !(it`ll take 5 mins for the water to boil and for the veggies to be cooked)

>Add the dahlia in a stirring motion so that its evenly mixed with the water and close it with a lid and let it cook for 5 mins, till its all cooked and seperated.
>Garnish with coriander and serve it hot with cool cucumber!


>You can add onions,tomatoes,giner,garlic,karipatta(curry leaves) to the dish.
