Dalia Pulao Breakfast [3 Vegetables]

I have completely ditched whole rice – thanks to Dalia (cracked wheat/bulgur/cracked barley). The flavour is nuttier, cooking time is down to 4-5 minutes and it’s really great for the guts.

Cracked grains are easily available on Asian store.

Dalia Pulao Breakfast

I don’t understand why broken cereal is looked down upon by everyone. With correct ingredients, they can be used to make some delicious recipes – this being one of them.

NOTE: The secret to a good flavour is to roast the grains nice and brown.

Let’s begin.
