Nutritious Dalia (Broken Wheat) Porridge Recipe


  • 1 cup dalia (broken wheat)
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tablespoons ghee (clarified butter)
  • 1/4 cup chopped mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, raisins)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon powder
  • 2 tablespoons jaggery or sugar (adjust to taste)
  • Pinch of salt



Dry Roasting the Dalia:
  • Heat a large pan over medium heat and add the dalia.
  • Dry roast the dalia for 3-4 minutes until it turns slightly golden and emits a nutty aroma. Stir frequently to prevent burning.
Cooking the Dalia:
  • In the same pan, add 3 cups of water and a pinch of salt.
  • Bring the water to a boil and then add the roasted dalia.
  • Reduce the heat to low and cover the pan. Let the dalia cook for about 15-20 minutes or until it becomes soft and the water is absorbed. Stir occasionally.
Adding Milk and Spices:
  • Once the dalia is cooked, add 1 cup of milk to the pan and mix well.
  • Stir in cardamom powder and cinnamon powder to add flavor.
Sweetening the Porridge:
  • Add jaggery or sugar to the porridge and mix until it’s well incorporated. Adjust the sweetness according to your taste.
Tempering with Nuts:
  • In a separate small pan, heat 2 tablespoons of ghee over low heat.
  • Add the chopped mixed nuts (almonds, cashews, raisins) and sauté until the nuts turn golden and aromatic.
Final Touch:
  • Pour the tempered nuts and ghee over the cooked dalia porridge and mix well.
  • Serve the warm dalia porridge in bowls.
  • You can garnish with additional nuts or fresh fruits if desired.

Enjoy this hearty and nutritious dalia porridge as a wholesome breakfast or a comforting meal any time of the day!
