Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

When it comes to healthy eating, this power packed complex carbohydrate lunch or dinner meal of cracked/broken wheat or dalia is one of the best. It plays a great contribution in controlling one's body weight. It contains virtually no fats and also free from saturated and trans fatty acids. Not only does it give an appealing taste, but also adds to the crunchiness when eaten. Adding vegetables to the daliya khichdi would increase its overall nutritional content. Daliya khichdi would be complete when eaten with a bowl of cold curds or a yummy vegetable raita.
