Broken Wheat Upma Kozhukattai

How about eating a healthy stuff for your breakfast or for your dinner???.. Actually i love anything cooked with broken wheat /wheat rava/Godhumai rava,make it either as a porridge or cook as like rice or else as briyani or upma, i love it to the core. Yesterday i felt bored of eating the same broken wheat upma, i tried my hands in making a upma and then steam cooked as dumplings, they came out simply awesome. You doesnt even need a side dish to enjoy this healthy dumplings, but still they tastes fabulous with a simple spicy coconut chutney.If you want to give a new avatar to the usual healthy broken wheat upma, make them as this steam cooked upma kozhukattais.
