broken wheat or dalia is a healthy food which is low in fat, high in iron & fibre, good in carbs and easy to digest. thus generally dalia, both sweet as well as savoury is given to small kids or convalescing adults. also, in case your stomach is upset then dalia and moong dal khichdi are a few dishes that are often recommended.

this sweet dalia or meetha dalia is liked by kids too. i make both the savory version of dalia with mix vegetables and this sweet dalia. somehow never ended up adding the recipe on blog. the vegetable dalia recipe is already shared on blog.

i do add some dry fruits in dalia, but its entirely optional. you can also add your choice of your dry fruits. the entire dalia recipe has been made in a pressure cooker. though you can also cook dalia in a pan.

  1. I just love everything you cook ! Your site is the ‘go to’ for simple, quick recipes.5 stars

    • with jaggery, milk can curdle. so first cook the dalia with milk. get it to the porridge consistency. switch off flame and wait for 3 to 4 minutes. then add powdered jaggery or chopped jaggery. mix well.

  2. This is the best and the easiest recipe. The taste turned out to be as rich as kheer. Loved it ❤️5 stars

  3. Nice recipe. I always put milk in the Dalia after roasting it. But it became thick. This is good way to put firstly water and milk later on.5 stars

  4. I am a student and could not understand point 8.
    If I leave the cooker isolated on stove for 5 to 6 minutes, will the dalia be ready or I have to tap the cooker every time it whistles or let it whistle.. please ellaborate the 8th point.

    Thank you.

    • timing for cooking in a pressure cooker depends on the size of the cooker. even the amount of water to be added depends on the size. smaller cookers like 2 or 3 litre cookers, need less water for cooking and more time. larger cookers like 4 to 5 litre need more water for cooking and less time. reason is that the pressure that is built in a larger cooker is more and this helps the food to cook faster as compared to smaller cookers.

      so if you are making this dalia in a 2 litre cooker, then 5 to 6 minutes is enough for the dalia to get cooked. you don’t have to tap the cooker everytime. if the dalia is fresh it will cook in 5 to 6 minutes. if the dalia is aged or old, it will take more time. so in case the dalia is not cooked after 5 to 6 minutes, then add some more water and pressure cook for 2 to 3 whistles more.

  5. I just wanted to write this for so long.. For any vegetarian dishes, i just follow your recipes and it’s always a hit. It’s like all hit recipes in one place. So much love to you . May god bless u

    Ps : Sometimes i wish u had non vegeterian blog also , where i can find all of the best non veg recipes.

  6. Hi Dassana,

    This is regular feature of my breakfast……now…earlier I tried to avoid daliya in any form………
    can u suggest any breakfast receipe with oats….i don’t like the packet oats with flavours that are coming in market….and it is said the health benefits are too many….some poha or upma kind of thing that can be happily taken as breakfast atleast 2 – 3 times a week..that doctor recommends.

    • oats is one ingredient that we all avoid 🙂 along with oats, i would suggest you to try millets like ragi, jowar, vari/sama ke chawal (barnyard millet), bajra, foxtail millet (navane). you can use them in flour form or in grain form. for eg idlis or dhokla can be made from sama ke chawal. ragi can be added to chapatis. even dosa can be made with ragi. i shall be posting recipes with millet grains. just experimented with foxtail millet and ragi dosa and it was good. will also try to post oats recipes.
