Broken Wheat Upma | Pressure Cooker Method

Today's recipe is healthy one pot meal which has lots of vegetables, loaded with fibre, high in nutrition and low in calories. Its Broken Wheat Upma. I like to add lots of veggies to this upma, particularly sweetcorn to it, that gives a nice crunch to it. This is a perfect breakfast recipe, at times you can pack this for lunch when you run out of time. It literally takes 15 to 20  Min's to make, because I have prepared this with pressure cooker. I always find easy and comfortable cooking in pressure cooker. It fast, easy and saves time. Serve hot with coconut chutney or pickle. Try this recipe, you will love it :)
