Healthy broken wheat and vegetable patties

Daliya /Cracked wheat is made with whole raw wheat kernels ,which are crushed ,grind or milled coarsly.It is a excellent source of fiber and low in fat.It is a very reasonably priced Super health food in comparison to oats,cornflakes,Quinoa etc.

It is easy to cook and easy to digest so it advised as a health food for patients and kids.This is also a ideal food for Diabetics, people want to loose weight and heart patients.

The high fiber content make the stomach full for a long time so good as a breakfast and lunch box variety.In Northern India it is a popular breakfast item.Used as a sweet porridge - Daliya Kheer,or healthy and quick savoury -Vegetable and Daliya upma.

Two types of daliya are mainly available,one is fine and the other is with medium can use any but I prefer to use the fine one to make this.The amount of water used to cook depends on the quality of daliya ,so add accordingly.

This is a healthy and low fat snack,you can mix any vegetable of your choice in it and can also increase the quantity of vegetables.Kids will surely love these delicious kababs and you can stuff the patties in the burger instead of regular potato patties to make the burger more healthy and nutritious.
