Daila or Daliya or Broken Wheat Rava or Godhumai Rava is an excellent source of proteins and complex carbohydrates. It is an amazing source of energy and it is rich in fibres. It helps in building muscles, regulating body metabolism and curing constipation. It is the most preferred diet about all fitness world people and blood sugar patients. Dalia or broken wheat is one of the most preferred foods for babies, toddlers and kids. I learnt this fact very late and that’s when I came with recipes like Dalia kheer and Dalia almond khicidi.
Though porridge/khicidi/ upma is the most common dishes suggested for babies with this dalia I would suggest you give a try with this variant of biriyani or pulao after 8 months skipping the salt. The below recipe came across our mind as we getting ready to prepare upma for morning breakfast. It took me few minutes and it came out super yummy. You can just tantalise your taste buds with Vegetable Dalia Biryani or Broken Wheat Biriyani recipe. I just followed my kuska/plain biriyani recipe. The entire crux of this recipe lies in two places, the amount of roasting done and the amount of water used.

Chopped Veggies-1/2 cup
Chilly Powder-1/4 Tsp

Is there anyone who doesn’t love deep fries? I am sure none. But with increasing health issues and more awareness, many people force themselves to avoid deep fry items. It is in a way to good to avoid but it is definitely not unhealthy if you consume deep fries in moderation with right lifestyle and food habits. Mom always avoids excess usage of oil in her cooking and that bug had bitten me long back. Many of my readers on seeing my daily menu images have questioned if I really add oil to food. I am unsure but I sincerely take efforts to keep oil usage right and I always use and recommend only pure seed oils and a strict to refined oils or all those fancy oils which keep coming in the market. I prefer being local and traditional as much as possible when it comes to food habits.
