This Dalia sheera, cracked wheat halwa recipe is a easy and healthy 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).

  4. Stir and Cook till the water is absorbed by dalia. This may take for 4-5 minutes. Dalia will be half cooked by this time.
  5. Strain the dissolved jaggery water over dalia. If adding sugar, add it now. Mix well.

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

Tips :

  • The color of your dalia sheera will depend on the color of your dry dalia and the color of jaggery. The color of daliya as well as jaggery available in the market differs. It is whitish to dark brown.
  • We heat, dissolve and strain jaggery to remove any impurities in it. If using sugar, add it after dalia is almost cooked and cook till it is absorbed completely.
  • The exact amount of water will depend on the variety of dalia.
  • You may increase or reduce the amount of ghee or oil according to your choice. Desi Ghee adds to the taste and flavor to the sheera.
  • You may use sugar instead of jaggery(gud). This will give a lighter color to sheera. If using sugar, no need to first heat and dissolve it in water.
  • 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.
