Vegetable Dalia Idli

By Divyagattani88
Dalia or broken wheat is one of the most nutritious ingredient which doctors also recommend to eat... but hey who eats dalia, unless or until you are very sick and your mom makes it for you. Some of you may disagree with me but I am not a big fan of dalia.
   With a few mix and match of ingredients I made Vegetable Dalia idli and guess what it did change my opinion, yes it was yum :)
    It is a quick recipe and it is healthy too!!! What more we want from a recipe, it is a great combination of taste and health.
