Dhaliya or Samba Rava or Broken Wheat is highly recommended in our everyday diet, especially for diabetics. It is considered a better substitute for rice due to its low sugar content. It cooks fast and tastes awesome with simple ingredients.
You can either pressure cook (1:2 ratio, that is dhaliya:water) or boil it in water, just like upma. Get the fat grained ones when you shop.
