Cracked Wheat Sambar Rice | South Indian Recipes | One Pot Meal | Video Recipe

  Cracked Wheat one of the nutritious grain.Cracked wheat also called 'samba gothumai' in Tamil ,'broken wheat' in English and 'daliya' in Hindi.I love broken wheat ,it is such a fibrous grain.We take it at least once in a week.You can prepare  upma,yogurt rice,biryani,payasam,sambar rice,bisibelabath with broken wheat or You can simply cook samba kothumai with 2-3 cups of water and have with yogurt/sambar.

    I normally prepare bisibelabath with cracked wheat ,it is little bit time consuming when you prepare fresh bisibelabath powder.This recipe of broken wheat is so simple ,its a one pot meal because of the use of masoor Dal.If you use toor Dal pressure cook it separate.Also use Pearl onion/sambar vengayam to taste authentic south Indian sambar sadam.

    You can use vegetables of your choice while preparing this sambar rice. The vegetables used for preparing any sambar.I love to add drumstick,carrot,chow chow.brinjal.These vegetables not only flavor the rice ,it  gives aroma while preparing also some nutrients to your diet.Adding ghee for tempering take this broken wheat sambar rice to another level.
