Daliya or cracked wheat Recipe

Cracked wheat also known as Bulgur (wikipedia) is highly nutritious. In India they are called as Daliya. There are many ways to cook them, some prefer to cook them as upma (I love them) however some eat it with milk, which tastes sweet. Upma can be either plain,simple or you can add spices and vegetables to it. I made this simple and quick Daliya upma. Note the time taken- 10 minutes and that’s all. If you are hungry and in hurry, use pressure cooker and tada! you will be done in minutes.
