How to make Meetha Daliya With Milk & Fruits Recipe - Broken Wheat Porridge

  1. To begin making the Meetha Dalia - Broken Wheat Porridge recipe, we have to first dry the broken wheat.

  2. Add the broken wheat to a pan placed on low heat and roast till it becomes golden brown. 

  3. To the same pan, add water and fennel seeds to it and cook till it softens. 

  4. Next add milk and let the contents come to a boil. Simmer on medium-low flame till milk and broken wheat are well assimilated and start to thicken just a little bit.

  5. Switch off the heat. Stir in the sugar. Allow the contents to cool or serve warm with fruits of your choice. 

  6. If you intend to have the porridge with fruits, ensure that it is not hot, else, the fruits will release water and turn mushy. (And it might taste bad)

  7. Serve Meetha Daliya on its own or along with a hot cup of Espresso Coffee for a weekday breakfast.

Note: I have never cooked broken wheat in an open pan. Rather to hasten the process of cooking, I have always used a pressure cooker. Cook till the broken wheat has turned soft. If you use a pressure cooker, ensure that you cook it on the lowest possible heat.

Note: I like the porridge slightly thick so I cook it for a little more duration than normal along with milk. Also, I love to load it with fruits and nuts.

Note: You can prepare and refrigerate the porridge a day before and serve it cold the next morning.

Note: For some extra flavor feel free to add a pinch of cinnamon powder or cardamom powder.
