Wheat rawa /cracked wheat lemon bhath
I have been wanting to try this lemon bhath for quite sometime after seeing this recipe at Malar's space a few weeks back. She had made this with broken rice. This cracked wheat version turned out great and was very tasty. We had it as a light evening meal with tomato chutney.
1. Wheat rawa or cracked wheat (smaller variety), 1 cup.
2. Lemon juice, 1/4 cup.
3. Green chilies, slit into 2, 2. This can be substituted with 1-2 broken dried red chilies and added along with the seasoning.
3. Finely chopped ginger, 1/4 teaspoon.
4. Curry leaves, a handful.
5. Chopped cilantro for garnishing.
6. Mustard seeds, 1/4 teaspoon.
7. Urad dhal, 1/4 teaspoon.
8. Channa dhal, 1/4 teaspoon.
9. Broken cashews, 1/2 tablespoon.
10. Salt as per taste.
11. Turmeric powder, 1/4 teaspoon.
Heat a pan with a tablespoon of oil. Add the mustard seeds and let it splutter once the oil turns hot. Then add the urad dhal, channa dhal, broken cashews, and curry leaves and fry for a few seconds. Lower the flame now to a low to medium simmer and add 2 cups of water along with the lemon juice, turmeric powder, green chilies, chopped ginger, and salt and let it come to a boil. Once it comes to a boil, add the cracked wheat and mix everything well. Let it cook on a low flame until all the water is absorbed. Garnish with chopped cilantro and switch off the stove. This dish tastes better if it is let it rest for sometime, for all the flavors to absorb, say for an hour.
