Broken wheat porridge

Also known as Daliya khichidi. Broken wheat is nutritious as it is rich in protein, fiber and iron.

It is a one pot meal- broken wheat and veggies along with spices are cooked together in a pressure cooker or Instant pot. It is incredibly light and healthy. The texture of the porridge is soft, which makes it easy for kids to eat.

I hope you like Broken wheat Porridge. It is is –

  • soft,
  • warm,
  • comforting,
  • and hearty.
