Dalia sheera cracked wheat halwa recipe

Easy Indian Breakfast Recipe

This Dalia sheera cracked wheat halwa recipe is a easy breakfast recipe. Dalia or daliya is also known as wheat rava, broken wheat, cracked wheat, lapsi etc.

As dalia or daliya is made with whole raw wheat, it contains the nutrition of whole wheat as it does not undergo any processing to refine it.

You may also use Bulgar wheat, also known as burghul, for this recipe. As it is precooked, it will cook faster than dalia.(see note below).

There are many recipes made with dalia, both sweet as well as savories.

This dalia halwa or sheea is easy and simple to make.

It is a quick recipe to make for breakfast or when you need a quick snack or a sweet dish to serve with a meal.

I am making this with jaggery but you may use sugar if you wish.

How to make Dalia sheera - Broken wheat halwa

Ingredients for Dalia sheera broken wheat halwa to serve 2-3

  • Dalia (broken wheat, cracked wheat) - 1 cup
  • Water - 2 1/2 to 3 cups as needed.
  • Jaggery(gud - brown sugar) - 3/4 cup, more or less according to taste.
  • Salt(optional) - a pinch
  • Ghee (clarifies butter) - 2 tbsp (vegans can use vegetable oil)
  • Dry fruits such as chopped cashew nuts, almonds and raisins - 2 tbsp
  • Powdered cardamom - 1/2 tsp

Method to make dalia sheera - wheat rava halva

  1. Add 1 cup of water and jaggery to a pan.
  2. Heat and bring to boil. Stir till jaggery dissolves. Take off fire and Keep aside.
  3. In another thick bottomed pan, add ghee and dalia.
  4. Keep stirring for 2-3 minutes till an aroma rises from dalia.
  5. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups of water. Mix and cover.
  6. Cook till the water has been absorbed. This may take for 4-5 minutes.
  7. Strain the dissolved jaggery water over dalia. Mix well.
  8. Cover and cook for another 2-3 minutes till all the water is absorbed and dalia is fully cooked. Add more water if needed.
  9. When dalia is fully cooked, add the chopped dry fruits and cardamom powder. Mix and switch off.

Keep covered till serving time.

Serve hot.

Note : Bulgar wheat, which is used more in America, is precooked and then broken. Whereas cracked wheat is broken when raw.

Tips :

The exact amount of water will depend on the variety of dalia.

You may use sugar instead of jaggery(gud).

You may use milk instead of water. Sheera will have a richer taste. Or you may use half milk and half water if you wish.
