dalia dish



Dalia, also known as broken wheat, is a traditional Indian staple particularly popular in Northern and Western parts of India. It is made by crushing whole raw wheat into coarse pieces. It is highly nutritious and low in fat and calories, a good source of energy, and rich in fiber. It is often cooked with water or milk and is occasionally flavoured with vegetables, making it both savoury and delightful to taste. Consumed mainly as breakfast, Dalia helps maintain weight, and its high fiber content keeps you full for longer.
