Samba Godumai (Broken wheat) Upma

Samba Godumai (Broken wheat) Upma

 Befor I got married, the moment my mom says that we have Upma for dinner or breakfast I would make my face and go without eating. So, after sometime, mom used to cook something else and not Upma.

After I got married, I look Upma at least once a week. (LOL). It is quick and easy to cook. This Upma unlike the regular rawa upma is not complicated and should not require continuous stirring when adding teh rawa to the hot water.

Now coming to this recipe, I love this than the regular Rawa Upma. It tastes so delicious and it is light and perfect for dinner.


  • Samba Godumai Rawa - 1 Cup
  • Water - 3 cups
  • Mustard - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Gram Dhall and Urad Dhall - 1/2 Tablespoon each.
  • Green Chillies- 2 (Finely Chopped)
  • Onion -1 (Small, finely chopped)
  • Tomato - 1 (Small finely chopped)
  • Cauliflower,Carrot,Beans and Peas - 1 cup.
  • Chilly powder - 1/2 Teaspoon
  • Coriander Leaves - For Garnishing
  • Salt and Oil


  • Heat a kadai with some oil. Once the oil is heated up, add the mustard and allow it to splutter.
  • Then add the gram dhall and Urad Dhall and roast for 30 second.
  • Then add onion and green chillies an d fry for 2-3 minutes.
  • Then add the tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes covered with a lid.
  • Once The tomatoes are cooked add the chilly powder and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Then add the vegetables and toss for a minute.
  • Then add the water and Samba Godumai Rawa and give it a good mix.
  • Cook it covered for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, open the kadai and mix well. 
  • Garnish with Coriander leaves and serve.


  • Unlike the regular Rawa Upma, you need not wait for the water to boil before adding the Samba Godumai Rawa.
  • No need to continuously stir the water while adding the Samba Godumai Rawa.
  • Just stir post you add the Samba Godumai Rawa to the water.
