Dalia Pulao (Wheat Porridge)


Dalia Pulao

Dalia (wheat porridge) is prepared using cracked wheat / barley and is one of my top 5 goto breakfast recipes.

Unlike whole rice, the cracked wheat takes significantly less time to cook, is soft but chewy, and has a delicious nutty taste to it. It’s super light and great for the guts.

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