Broken Wheat Upma, as the name suggests is a nutrient-rich wheat based upma. While the broken wheat brings in loads of dietary fibre and energy, carrot and green peas bring along a wealth of nutrients, especially vitamin A. The veggies also add crunch to an otherwise soft upma. You may also add other veggies of your choice to make it more colourful and tasty.
