Vegetable Daliya ( Cracked wheat)

After going out for lunch for past two days..I got fed up of eating out, so thought of this quick recipe in the morning. I did not want to eat rice so I just replaces rice with daliya (cracked wheat).

Serves 2 people
1-1/2 cup daliya
1Green pepper- chopped
1 Small Onion- chopped
1 cup peas
1 Small Potato - chopped
few curry leaves
2 green chillies- chopped
Cilantro to garnish

Hing (Asafoetida)
Cumin seeds
Mustard seeds
3/4 tspn - Red chilli powder
1/2 tspn - Turmeric powder
1 tspn - Coriander powder
Salt - to taste

Heat the pressure cooker and put ghee in it. When ghee is hot enough, add hing to it followed by mustard seeds. When seeds start to crackle add cumin seeds and then curry leaves and green chillies. Then add potatoes to it and let potatoes cook for 5 mins on medium flame. When potatoes are half done add onions, peas and green pepper to it. Then add the daliya to it and let it roast for 5 mins on medium to slow flame and keep stirring it.
(You can also cook daliya separately and then mix it with the veggies at the end).
Then add all the spices to it. Add 4-1/2 to 5 cup of water to it.  Then cover the cooker and get 2 whistles on medium to high flame and then cook for 12-15 mins on slow flame. Add cilantro once its ready!

PS: You can add veggies as per your liking!


  1. nice! interesting!
    never made anything with daliya before..Will try this soon..
    From what I heard about it before, it's supposed to be very healthy ..right?

  2. Daliya is very healthy and has a lot of fibre. So if you are trying to lose weight, this would definitely be a very healthy way of filling up your tummy. I am definitely going to try it, Thanks for posting!
