  5. For the matcha bowl, use about 1 cup of the cracked wheat and soak the matcha powder in the warm milk for 5 mins. Stir it in and then top with the various toppings.
  6. For the saffron-turmeric bowl, use another one cup of cracked wheat and put the saffron/turmeric/nutmeg/cinnamon in warm milk for 5 minutes. Stir it in the cracked wheat and top with the various toppings.

  7. For the vanilla bowl, stir in some vanilla essence into another 1 cup of cracked wheat and top with the toppings.
  8. You can make the remaining cracked wheat into which ever flavor you like and enjoy a delicious start to your morning!
Stove-Top
  1. For making the cracked wheat, roast it in the pressure cooker with ghee. Then add the water and salt and cook for 2 whistles. The first whistle should be on high flame and the second on medium heat. Switch off the gas and release the pressure. Open it up, add milk and jaggery and cook on medium heat for 5 minutes until it thickens. Then follow the above recipe starting with step 4.

Recipe Notes
  • Any milk like soy or almond would work just as well here.
  • Coconut oil works instead of ghee as they both give it a nice toasty flavor.
  • You can use any toppings that you want with these different flavors!
  • If you want to store the cracked wheat, just put it in the fridge once you open the Instant Pot (before you add the 2 cups milk). When you want to eat it, about 2-3 days later at most, just stir in the milk, sugar, flavor, and toppings.
  • It can also be enjoyed hot or cold depending on your preferences.
