Daliya Pakoda – Healthy Snacks for the Diet Conscious
It’s raining and I was longing for pakodas. Being single, I hardly have ingredients for pakoda. All of a sudden, I had an idea to try making Daliya Pakoda. Daliya or Broken Wheat is a cereal food prepared from the hulled or crushed grain of various different wheat varieties in which most common one is durum wheat. Daliya generally doesn’t have a good impression among general public. It’s considered as a tasteless food. Trust me, you can make a wide variety of dishes with daliya.
Daliya does not get sticky on adding water unlike wheat flour. But if we use just the right amount of water, the water itself acts as an adhesive. This recipe of pakoda is easy to make. Apart from being easy-to-make, it is a super quick recipe which you can easily make.
10-15 minutes for upto 15 pakodas
- Daliya – 1 cup
- Chopped Green chilly – 1
- Salt – As per taste
- Garlic Powder – 1/2 teaspoon
- Water – 1/2 cup
- Refined Oil – 1 1/2 teaspoon
How to make Daliya Pakoda
Add daliya in a bowl. Add salt, garlic powder and chopped green chilly and mix well. Slowly add water and keep stirring. The mixture should become a thick paste. Excess of water can make it difficult to hold the mixture at one place.
Now, heat oil in pan and slowly add one teaspoon of the mixture wait for 5-10 seconds and with the help of a spatula, slowly turn the pakoda upside down to let it cook in the other side. Wait for 5-10 seconds and turn the pakoda upside down. Repeat the process once more till you see a slightly brownish colour in both the sides and you can take it out.
1 cup of Daliya will make you 5-6 pakodas. Unlike other pakodas, Daliya Pakodas keep you filling full for quite some time.
