Godhumai Upma – Kheema Upma -How to make Keema broken Wheat Upma

Broken-wheat-upma

Broken wheat Upma or Godhumai Uppuma might be a great meal in itself if made properly. The one big problem with godhumai upma is getting the right texture. A good godhumai upma should be lump free. It should not be hard and at the same time it should not be gooey. Many people fret on hearing the word upma as we all have had our share of night mare upma’s in our life. I am just being honest. But a good upma is delightful and my family loves this upma. I first had godhumai kaima upma at Usha Aunties home. She took a humble upma and made it gourmet. Ever since that day, I make kaima upma very often. The recipe got even better after I tried the OPOS – One Pot One Shot way of doing godhumai upma. No frying, no sauteing, no worry about lumps. Fool proof divine upma every single time with very little effort. Here is how to do it.

The first thing to do in this godhumai upma is to double roast the broken wheat granules. Take a pan and add in a teaspoon of oil. Add in the godhumai / broken wheat and saute for 5 minutes on low flame. It will start to slowly brown and become very fragrant. Switch off the flame and transfer the broken wheat to a plate. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

Roast one more time. Take the same pan and add in a teaspoon of oil. Add in the roasted and cooled godhumai / broken wheat and saute for 5 minutes on low flame. The wheat will start to brown. Switch off the flame and transfer the broken wheat to a plate. Set aside to cool.
