Dalia Bhaat (Broken Wheat Risotto )
Dalia Bhaat is one such dish that I usually prepare once in a week for lunch or dinner. It’s packed with nutrients , very light to digest and incredibly tasty. I had learned it through a cookery show named Khana Khazaana by Sanjeev Kapoor and since then it was a family super hit. I was wondering why I hadn’t posted this recipe yet . This recipe goes to last week of BM#31 , under Main Course .So let’s start the recipe of a much awaited recipe . Yum
