Editor`s notes: Dalia or broken wheat is a popular breakfast cereal in North India. It is made by breaking down whole wheat into smaller, easily cooked bits.

Dalia is high in fibre content which keeps the digestive system healthy. It also keeps hunger at bay for a longer time and is ideal for weight watchers.

A complex carbohydrate, dalia gets digested slowly. It releases glucose on a sustained rate making it an ideal food for diabetics and for those with elevated cholesterol levels.
