|sweet milk dalia|
This is a very healthy recipe and can satisfy your craving for sweets. Sweet dalia or meetha dalia can be served as a breakfast and is also ideal for kids. Sweet dalia called ‘lapsi’ is also made without milk but as you can see, in this recipe, I have used milk.
Recipe of sweet dalia/ meetha dalia
1 cup dalia (cracked wheat/broken wheat/wheat rava)
2 cups water
4 cups milk
1 cup Sugar
A pinch of cardamom (elaichi) powder
Few nuts like raisins (kishmish) and chopped almonds
Few strands of saffron
1 tbsp ghee (clarified butter)
1. Heat ghee in a pressure cooker and roast dalia. Roast till it turns aromatic and a little brown.
2. Add water and pressure cook to 2 whistles.
3. In a separate vessel, bring the milk to boil. Add sugar and dalia. Cook for few minutes stirring occasionally. Cook till dalia reaches desired consistency. It tends to get thicker upon cooling down.
4. Add elaichi powder, raisins and saffron strands. After 2 minutes, turn off the heat and take out sweet dalia in a serving bowl.
