Daliya! broken wheat, banana, dry fruits bowl

Daliya, banana & dry fruits bowl, a treat for a breakfast lover like me!๐Ÿ˜ฌโค

daliya (bulgur wheat/ broken wheat) more or less shares the same nutritional value as oats and also easy to make a tasty bowl

as it is, it’s mostly a staple when it comes to the breakfast menu in any Indian household

and seeing so many healthy bowls in my feed I thought of why not put together a healthy one for myself with daliya as the base๐Ÿ’ƒ

the prep remains simple as always if making for one person:
๐Ÿงก roast 1/2 cup of daliya in 1/4 tbsp of ghee/ unsalted butter (although this step could be avoided altogether if you want to avoid ghee)
๐Ÿงก next, put it in a pressure cooker and add 2 cups of water and wait for 1-2 whistles. alternatively, you can boil it in 2-3 cups of water for like 3-4 mins (the coarse broken wheat should’ve significantly become bigger)
๐Ÿงก then to that mix add 2 cups of milk and 1-2 tbsp sugar or any healthy sugar alternative like coconut sugar etc. I used 2 tbsp jaggery powder to mine
๐Ÿงก after cooking for 2-3 mins add 1/2 tbsp of ilaichi powder (cardamom powder) & give it a final stir 1-2 times & that’s it
๐Ÿงก serve it with your choice of dressing & enjoy!๐Ÿ˜๐ŸŒผโœจ

before signing off here are a few things I got to know about daliya as in its nutritional value that I want to share:
๐Ÿ’ช daliya is a rich source of healthy carbs (complex carbs), protein as well as micronutrients
๐Ÿ’ช it helps in improving metabolism & relieving constipation since it’s rich in fiber
๐Ÿ’ช helps in weight management as keeps your stomach full for a longer time thus controls hunger pangs, again thanks to its fiber content
๐Ÿ’ช good protein component so helpful for ppl focusing on muscle building
๐Ÿ’ช good for diabetics as keeps blood sugar levels in control

ok bye!๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ
