Cracked wheat

English: Cracked wheat

Common Indian Name (Hindi): Dalia

  • Cracked wheat is a wheat product made from whole raw wheat kernels which are crushed or cut into smaller pieces.
  • Cracked wheat carries a great deal of nutrition and fiber since it is made from whole wheat berries. It includes the fiber and nutrient rich outer bran and germ of the wheat.
  • There are a wide range of uses for cracked wheat. It can also be used in grain pilafs, multi-grain bread, pancakes and other grain dishes. The crushed wheat berries may be soaked or partially cooked when they are included in recipes such as bread, to ensure that they are fully cooked when the food is served.
