My sister always prefer Broken Wheat compared to rice because of the dietary advices. She tries all the recipes which we generally do with rice and substitute with Broken Wheat. Last week she tried to concoct our traditional Thiruvadhirai Kali using broken wheat instead of rice and she shared her experience and advised me to publish this recipe as many of us love to eat sweet dishes but are concerned about calories. Broken Wheat(Daliya) Kali, is simple and healthy sweet variety. Try this and share your comments!

Ingredients:
Moog dal2 tablespoon
Broken Wheat1 Cup*
Grated Jaggery1.25 Cups
Water1 Cup*
Cardamom Powder1/4 pinch
Cashews10
Grated Coconut1 tablespoon
Ghee2 tablespoon

*1 Cup Capacity = 250ml

Method:
  1. Dry roast the moong dal till it turns golden brown color. Take the roasted moong dal aside. Add the broken wheat and roast it till a nice aroma comes and the wheat turns slightly red color. Take the roasted broken wheat aside

  2. Again add the roasted moong dal and add a cup of water and cook the moong dal till it becomes just cooked and not mushy. When you take a cooked moong dal and press it in between your fingers, it should break easily but should not be mushy. Meanwhile, add grated jaggery in a vessel and add a tablespoon of water and bring it to boil so that jaggery is completely dissolved.

  3. Using a strainer add the jaggery juice to the cooked moong dal and mix well. Add the rest of water and bring the mixture to boil. 

  4. Add the roasted broken wheat and mix well to avoid lumps and keep the flame low and allow the broken wheat to cook completely. Finally add cardamom powder, ghee and grated coconut and mix well. Keep in flame for a minute and remove from flame. Garnish the kali with roasted cashews

  5. The lip-smacking Broken Wheat(Daliya) Kali is now ready to serve! We can also prepare this as a neivedhyam dish also.
