Whole Wheat Pulihora

We get whole wheat grains here which can be cooked exactly like pastas..These wheat grains can be used instead of pasta which i usually serve with pasta sauces, this time i tried using those already partially cooked but dried whole wheat grains for making pulihora which was quite unusual..Trust me, u wont regret making this pulihora with whole wheat grains, they tastes marvellous,even my H who never like this sort of dishes with wheat enjoyed having with fried papads..This pulihora tastes super delicious after a day, we loved it...I used tamarind extract for making this pulihora,needless to say that this dish is even prefect for diabetic peoples..Definitely a healthy version of pulihora which am gonna make often for the sure..In case if u dont get these sort of partially cooked but dried whole wheat grains,u can use the usual whole wheat grains,but dont forget to cook in pressure cooker before making this dish..Hope u guys wont bother about the click na, its was quite rainy the day i prepared this dish and the picture doesnt turn prefectly, sending this wheat pulihora to Satya's Twist the Tradition - Pulihora and to CWS-Wheat guest hosted by Suma..
