Dalia pulao

In North India it is known as dalia. It is also referred as “cracked wheat”, “samba rava”, “broken wheat” and “godhuma rava”. Dalia pulao is a healthy, nutritious, high in iron and fiber meal. It’s an healthy twist to pulao which we normally make at home. Instead of using brown rice, I have used dalia. It is very easy to make and it doesn’t take much time to cook. You can add vegetables of your choice to make it more delicious.


  • Roast dalia in little oil and keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in a pressure cooker, season with bay leaf and cumin seeds.
  • Now add chopped onions and saute till it is translucent. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till raw aroma goes away.
  • Then add green chillies, carrots, beans and chopped tomatoes, saute it for 5 minutes. Add all spices and saute for 5 minutes more.
  • Now add broken wheat and mix well. Add water and close the lid of the cooker.
  • Pressure cook, once its done turn off the flame. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
