Godhuma Rava Pongal Recipe / Cracked Wheat Pongal / Broken Wheat pongal is a healthy breakfast dish for kids and adults. This wheat rava pongal is prepared with cracked wheat, moong dal spiced up with ginger, green chilly, pepper and cumin. This dish is very good for diabetes patients. You can have this samba rava pongal for breakfast or lunch or dinner, they are very filling and satisfying. I am not a upma lover and I particularly hate godhuma rava (cracked wheat ) upma when I was a kid. As cracked wheat are good for health so my mom makes cracked wheat payasam or pongal made with broken wheat once in a while. I enjoy to eat it as pongal because it tastes really yummy when compare to regular venpongal (ghee pongal). Serve this pongal with sambar or coconut chutney. Also check my other pongal recipes – oats pongal, venpongal, sweet pongal, rava pongal, samai (little millet) pongal, kalkandu pongal (rock candy pongal)
