This dish is healthy and tasty, too! Dig in, guilt – free! Add some leftover chopped veggies if you have them !



2 cups Dalia (Broken wheat)

1 cup peeled green peas

2 carrots chopped

1 big onion chopped

1 green capsicum chopped

½ cauliflower chopped into small pieces

2-3 green chillies chopped

Coriander for garnish

2 tablespoons cooking oil

2 cups water

Salt and chilli powder to taste

Optional: Secret ingredient – 1 teaspoon of Sambhar Powder)


  • Roast the dalia on low flame for 1 minute. Stir constantly to avoid charring the dalia/broken wheat. This will make it crunchy and bring out that nutty taste and deep brown color. Alternatively, if you like your dalia/broken wheat a bit slushy skip this step.
  • Put roasted dalia and water in a pressure cooker and cook for 1 whistle or till the dalia grains are tender and the water has dried out.
  • In a pan heat oil. Starting with the green chillies, add all the chopped vegetables and cook till tender.
  • Add the cooked dalia to the vegetables. Stir and mix well.
  • Add the salt, chilly powder and if you like, some sambhar powder (you’ll be surprised with the punch in flavor!)
  • Stir and mix well. Take off the heat and garnish with corriander.
