This dish can be eaten as a breakfast food or as supper. Doctors prescribe wheat porridge for diabetic patients as part of their menu. It is a very light food.
Ingredients
  Cracked wheat 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Cracked wheat is a fine)
  Water 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt To Taste (as required)
Directions

1. Wash the wheat and keep aside.
2. Boil water in a rice cooker and drop in the wheat.
3. Cook till almost done and pour in the milk and add salt.
4.Bring to a boil and the dish is done.

It should be served hot with spicy pickles.

TIP: The dish should not be dry. It should be in a semi fluid state. If left over is there and you plan to use it the next day, it should be loosened with hot milk or water (because the porridge tends to thicken as it cools)
