Bulgur/Burghol Upma

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Sunday, January 16, 2011

A Quick Breakfast/Dinner Menu. Whenever i feel so damn tired to make something for Breakfast/Dinner, i cook this Bulgur/Burghol Upma. Its very easy and simple to make and takes less time to Prepare. It doesnt require any Side Dish as such, goes very well Sauce or a Simple Low-fat Yoghurt mixed with Black Salt and Chilli Powder.

1 cup Bulgur/Burghol
1 Large Onion, chopped
3-4 Green Chillies/ Red Chillies
2 sprigs of Curry leaves
hing, turmeric each a pinch
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2 tsp Cooking oil
Coriander leaves and Ginger Juliennes for Garnishing
Boil 2 cups of Water and Blanch Bulgur/Burghol for 5 minutes. Heat Oil in a Kadai/Deep Pan, Splutter Mustard seeds, add chillies, curry leaves, hing and turmeric. After a minute, add Blanched Burghol, add Salt and Mix well. Cover and  Cook in a Low flame for 5-10 minutes. Put off the Flame. Garnish with Coriander leaves and Ginger juliennes. We enjoyed with  Low-fat yoghurt Mixed Whisked with Black Salt and Red Chilli powder.  Tasted Delicious and a Filling Meal!!!!!
