Daliya or broken wheat is a very nutritious grain as it is prepared by breaking unrefined whole wheat into smaller coarse grains. So it is rich in fibre and a healthier choice as it retains all the minerals, vitamins and natural goodness of whole wheat.
This crushed wheat can be used to prepare salty dishes like upma with vegetables, or sweet kheer with jaggery.
1. Toast the daliya on a hot pan for a few minutes. This helps cook it faster and changes the colour to a beautiful darker brown.
2. When preparing kheer, the daliya can first be cooked with a little water in the cooker. Cooking it in milk will take a very long time. Add the milk once the daliya has softened and cook on low heat for 15-20 minutes. Then stir in the sugar or jaggery.
