Vaghareli Roti

Masala Dalia

When it comes to healthy eating, this power-packed complex carbohydrate 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 it would increase its overall nutritional content. Having at least one serving of whole grains such as cracked wheat every day lowers the risk of high cholesterol, cardiovascular disease, and high blood pressure.
