Dalia (Cracked Wheat) Soup

          Dalia or cracked wheat has become very popular at present and is often had in the form of upma or khichdi. But I tried to make a soup out of it. It turned out equally deliciously. Dalia as is well known is very nutritious and wholesome. So a simple bowl of soup can be taken any time of the day and helps satiate your hunger for long.

  • 1/2 cup dalia, soaked overnight
  • 1 lemon grass, cut into 3
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1" ginger, chopped
  • salt to taste
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper powder or to taste
  • 3 cups water / stock
  • lemon juice to taste
  • coriander leaves to garnish

          Heat oil in a pan and saute the onions, ginger and garlic till soft and translucent. Add the dalia, water, salt, lemon grass and pepper powder and pressure cook for 5-7 minutes on low flame after the first whistle.

          When cool, discard the lemon grass and blend into a puree. More water can be added according to the consistency required. Before serving, heat through and add lemon juice. Garnish with coriander leaves and pepper powder.
