Wheat is a sweet and heavy food and is therefore excellent for Vatas. This recipe used creamed wheat that has been roasted and therefore it undergoes change and refinement.
“Agni Samskara” The process of refinement using fire through roasting helps to reduce this heaviness and make the ultimate dish light and easy on the digestion for Kaphas.
Upmas can be made from semolina, quinoa, barley, millets and just about any other grain.
They form a great breakfast food or even an accompaniment to a meal.
