This is pressure cooker method. My mom used to do in kadai. When it cool down, it will be little dry to eat. But i learned this method from my MIL, even if got cool down also it will be so soft to eat. Easy for digestion for children’s and elder people. No need to dry roast wheat rava, you can directly cook it.
I sometimes throw in a few chopped veggies for added nutrition. This diabetic friendly grain needs more water to cook than the normal semolina or upma rava. For one cup of finer version of broken wheat, you need to add two and 1/2 cups of water for the grain to cook well. The resultant upma has a loose, dry texture.
