Wholesome Broken Wheat Vegetable Porridge

This Daliya uses less grain and more vegetables. The ratio is 1:3 (1 cup grain to 3 cups vegetables). Why? Because grains are hard to digest. Our body has to spend a lot of time processing grains (about 18 hours). But when combined with vegetables, less grain goes inside the body, so it can spend less time digesting and more time healing itself.



• 1 cup broken wheat porridge (daliya)
• 1 ½ teaspoons cumin seeds
• 1 cup green beans, finely chopped
• 1 cup carrots, finely chopped
• 1 cup green peas
• 2 small green chilies, very finely crushed
• 4 cups water
• 2 teaspoons rock salt
• Handful fresh coriander
