Brown mustard is available in any of the Indian Grocery stores. I like to enjoy this with a side of spicy Indian mango or lemon pickle. For color and extra healthy punch you can add t tsp. of turmeric powder to the oil before adding green chilies. This is a one pot meal for a quick fix for dinner or break fast.

5
Reduce the heat to minimum or switch it off to avoid splattering or forming lumps while you slowly add toasted cream of wheat to the boiling broth. Once it is mixed in completely and it becomes thick you can turn the heat back on to very low temperature and close the lid leaving the mixing ladle in to keep the lid semi open for the air to escape and let it cook for 5 to 10 minutes. After turning the heat off mix the lemon juice and mix it very well. You can add more butter for an enhanced taste. This is a one pot meal for a weekday dinner or a weekday break fast.
