dalia pulav
Broken wheat recipes are simple and yummy, of course. Mom makes the best dalia kitchdi ever. Every time I visit her, I make sure I savor it at least once.

As a great source of fiber, cracked wheat complements your dietary program. It is rich in vitamin B, which raises the health quotient of dalia or cracked wheat, making it a must-include ingredient on your daily diet and menu list. If you are looking for healthy recipes, then including cracked wheat in your diet is crucial. I find dalia for weight loss by Baba Ramdev as crystal clear and pure, so I have been buying both barley and whole wheat dalia from Patanjali stores.

Anyway, the cracked berries of whole wheat are distinctively nutty. A low calorie, versatile ingredient, cracked wheat is loaded with nutrients.

Is Cracked Wheat for Weight Loss Good?
Broken wheat belongs to the family of whole grain foods, which are critical to maintaining a healthy body weight.

Studies reveal that cracked wheat for weight loss is no joke. A Harvard Medical School study found that including whole grains in your diet aid considerably in weight loss compared to refined grains, such as maida or white flour. Alternatively, refined flours, including all-purpose flour or bread flour, raised the rate of metabolic syndrome, which further complicates conditions for the heart,raising risk of heart ailments, cardiovascular disease, and type 2 diabetes.

Broken wheat benefits health in more ways than one, and including whole grains lowers the rate of metabolic syndrome and thus reducing risk of heart ailments and metabolism-related problems.

Rich in magnesium, a body building mineral, helping in over 300 reactions in your body. Amazing, isn't it? Magnesium benefits for health in a number of ways. It is required for

  • bone health, 
  • energy production, 
  • nervous system balance, 
  • normal immune function,

  • blood sugar control

Since dalia or cracked wheat is high in magnesium, it stands out from some other whole grains as a nutritional source for the body. For more magnesium benefits, walk over here.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.
