This is a South Indian breakfast dish, but you can also eat it for lunch or a light dinner. If you use cream of wheat make sure you use the regular kind, not the instant. Often the vegetable used is peas, but I just buy a bag of mixed frozen vegetables and use that, or chop up whatever vegetables I have on hand. However, don't use greens. Vegetables like peas, corn, carrots, onion, green beans, green pepper and edamame work best. You may find that you need more salt than you normally use in cooking. I like to eat it with Indian pickle, but any spicy sauce will work.
