Broken Wheat Upma

Breakfast are very important and they are must to start our day, but somehow i dont eat as like we do in India. My breakfast often goes for a bowl of cereals with a fruit, thats really enough for me to start my day. Obviously i do our Indian style breakfast dishes like dosas,idlies,upmas and pongals for our dinner. I'll do alternative them as per my kid's mood. Sometimes they will love to have just a bowl of soup with some bread and meats.

However my kids enjoy their Indian dinner, eventhough most of the time i'll insist them to take this kind of healthy upma. Coming to this healthy upma with moongdal and coconut, this dish is completely different from our usual upmas coz of the addition of moongdal and grated coconut.Coconut will change the flavour of this simple upma,while moongdal will add some protein to this dish. A super easy breakfast or dinner to enjoy with a spicy coconut chutney.This upma is from one of my mom's cookbook which she treasure from a long.
