Kodhumai/Wheat Rava/Cracked wheat Uppuma and Coriander-Peanut Chutney

This is a very simple and filling meal which makes its way in to my kichen atleast once a week. Usually I make this uppuma for dinner whenever I make sambhar for lunch, so that I need not put extra effort for making any chutneys.Sambhar and wheat rava uppuma are a classic combo. But yesterday for a change I made this coriander - peanut chutney to go with this delicious uppuma, which equally tasted good.
Change is always good right..

Wheat Rava Uppuma

Wheat rava/cracked wheat - 2 cups
water - 4 cups
1 tsp mustard seeds
1tsp urad dhal
1 tsp channa dhal
1 tsp chopped ginger
2 green chillies, slit
1 medium onion chopped
few curry leaves
Dry roast the Rava in a pan without oil i medium flame for atleast 10 mins
(Do not avoid this step , as it reduces the raw smell of the wheat a lot)
Heat a tblsp of oil in a non stick pan/kadai.
Add the tempering ingredients mustard, urad dhal, channa dhal and curry leaves when the oil is hot.
When the mustard pops add the onion , chillies and ginger, fry till onion turns translucent
Now add the water and salt to taste.Close with a lid and allow it to boil.
When the water is boiling, slowly add the wheat rava and stir well. Reduce the flame to medium , close with a tight lid and cook for 10 mins.
Stir well, reduce the flame to very low, close with a lid and cook for another 10 mins.
Coriander peanut chutney:

1 bunch of coriander leaves
1 handful of mint leaves(optional)
1/2 cup of roasted peanuts
2 green chillies
1/2 tsp tamarind paste
1 garlic pod
Grind all the above ingredients with the required amount of salt
Make the tempering with mustard , urad dhal, curry leaves and pour over the chutney.
Stir well and serve.
