Daliya ki kheer – Broken wheat and milk porridge cooked in Indian way
Being a complex carbohydrate, the rate at which it gets digested is slow thus releasing glucose on a slow and sustained rate. This makes it an ideal food for diabetics, people wanting to lose weight or those who have high cholesterol levels.
It has high fibre content, which not only helps in keeping the digestive system healthy but also keeps the hunger at bay for a longer
time. Daliya is very good for all age people. You can give daliya ki kheer to babies as it is very nutritious and easy to digest and kids just love its creamy texture and taste. Old age people have difficulty digesting heavy food but this daliya ki kheer is also good for them.
It is also a very good for new mothers and lactating mothers as post natal food . Just add some more nuts and give for breakfast with some savory food.

so inviting kheer. awesome recipe
want this kheer..thinking of making this:)
cant take off my eyes from the screen 🙂 very yummy dalia..
Like this! I had spotted a pack of organic dalia last time and planned to buy it and make some kichadi. Now kheer will also be on the cards.
we used get this every morning while in coll.hostel. only if they have made it as scrumptious as yours we would have fallen in love with this. looks delish. gonna try your version soon for b'fast.
my mom loves this and makes it her way. i think she just uses daliya direct in milk and keeps stirring till daliya gets soft.
i love this kheer too except when it forms malai which i dont like.. any idea how to avoid the malai in this
