Dalia/Broken wheat/Cracked wheat/Godhumai Rava/Samba Rava/Lapsi-This is one of the healthiest products of whole wheat. Grandmother makes simple upma out of this when we really have no option for dinner. It has never been a regular meal. As I started looking more options for babies not based out of rice this came out as an excellent option and I found this. I made few twists to the usual recipe and I myself loved it so much than ever. Do try for yourself and let me know how you liked it. Cracked wheat is said to be rich in fiber,iron,protein and carbs. I have added almonds,spices and loads of veggies to make it a wholesome meal. It can be accompanied by any chutney or raitha or plain curd. Cracked wheat for babies is advised from 6 months and if you have a doubt please have word with your pediatrician .
