NAMKEEN DALIA


This is a very healthy breakfast for me and I like it also, almost no oil is used and it has lots of vegetables. and not much cooking even.

Ingredients:-----

1cup broken wheat

250 gm cabbage..julienned

1small capsicum..julienned

1 carrot grated

1 tsp. oil
1tsp. mustard seeds.

1/2 tsp. turmeric

1/2 tsp salt or as you like it

1/2 lemon

2 tbsp. roasted peanuts.

Green chilli(optional)

coriander leaves..finely chopped for garnishing.

Dry roast the broken wheat, till it is golden.

In a pan put oil, and when it is hot add mustard seeds.

When they start spluttering add all the vegetables.

saute them for 5-8 minutes, till they get shiny or loose water.

Keep them aside.

Now cook the broken wheat with 2 cup water, turmeric and salt, slow the fire and cook till all the water is absorbed.

Mix the vegetables in this.

Now while serving spread some peanuts and then sprinkle lemon.
TIPS:.....even you can roast the wheat in microwave also, you will have to stir it once or twice.
Some people add tomatoes also, but I dont because my H doesnt like them in this:)

I'm not exactly sure wht this broken wheat is....is broken wheat & bulgar wheat the same thing????

The recipe itself sounds tasty & nutritious.

SR said...

hi Renu, I just got some broken wheat and was wondering about the items I can cook. Your recipe was so well timed. Will definitely try this out.

Dear reflections, I also got what is called Bulgur wheat - they are pretty much the same..different names in different parts of the world I guess

Smriti said...

This looks yummy Mommy!

Reflections, if you get couscous you can probably try this recipe with couscous. I almost feel broken wheat and couscous are the same thing, if not they should be very similar.

Just one question though for u Renu...The ultimate thing was not dry..like the way sooji upma becomes..but it was a little soggy..how can I correct that

Renu said...

Anonymous: sorry for replying so late !..reason for being soggy may be....

1-either for cooking you put more water than required, next time reduce the quantity of water

2.or give it more time on the heat.
