    I make this savory Indian style like Upma with peas, carrots, beans, tomatoes, etc. For seasoning we use 1tsp mustard seeds, 1tsp split, peeled black gram, chopped green chilies and garnish with cilantro. Just wonder what is Indian about this recipe? - 8/24/09

    Lori asked how long it will take to cook. You cook cracked wheat/bulgar the same way you cook rice. It's a great and healthier substitute. - 8/24/09
