Are you looking for a one-pot easy recipe that keeps you full for longer and is ideal for weight loss too?
Daliya or broken wheat is a popular Indian grain that can be used to make savory or sweet porridges. This is the easy recipe of savory daliya made with Moong Khichdi daal (Moong Split green lentil).
It works best for busy people as it can be easily prepared in less than 20 minutes. This is my go-to recipe when I don’t wish to have an elaborate meal or I am sick and yet not compromise upon nutrition.
One can make a sweet daliya using milk or daliya upma or vegetable daliya.
Apart from the local vegetables, this savory recipe needs a Daliya pack. I have used Rajdhani Daliya as it’s locally available and is of good quality.
You may look for any brand that is locally available. I have used it unroasted so I roasted it before using.
Is this a Vegan Daliya?
Yes, if you replace desi ghee with any other vegan oil. I will just say that I love Daliya and Khichdi with Desi ghee. If your preference doesn’t match here, you may always change it.
Is Daliya Khichdi Good for weight loss?
Any food in moderation is generally ideal for weight loss. When I started my weight-loss journey, I had dal daliya for dinner twice a week, and must I mention, it was a tasty and filling meal.
A good source of fiber, iron, magnesium, and other minerals, daliya acts as a complete meal. Owing to its digestive properties, it helps avoid constipation, which is one of the main causes of weight gain.
Is Daliya better than Oats?
It depends on individual preference. If comparing them on the weight-loss parameter, oats have fewer calories, more proteins than daliya. Daliya is rich in micro-nutrients than oats.
The question is which one you munch on more. In my case, daliya is really filling. Oats seem to be great snacks and I can have them more without realizing.
This one-pot recipe of Daliya Khichdi is quick and works best especially when you are sick or don’t wish to indulge in elaborate cooking.
It is an ideal recipe for toddlers.
I prefer using Desi Ghee. One may choose coconut oil or another oil. The taste is best with desi ghee in my opinion.
Roast Daliya on simmer in a pressure cooker. Once it’s brown add desi ghee, spices like black pepper, red chilly powder, Jeera (Cumin seeds), and add soaked Moong Split Green Lentils. Add salt and water. Boil it for two whistles on full and simmer for five min.
You may add any vegetables in it.
I skipped veggies as it was a super lazy day for me. Also, when I am sick, I prefer a plain one over veggies one.
