Dalia (Broken Wheat) Salad

Many times I read about Couscous Salad and I want to do this. But Couscous is not available easily in India. So I decided to use broken wheat (dalia) instead of Couscous. Daliya is easily available as well as very healthy.


  • Broken wheat(Dalia/ Lapashi rawa)- ¼ cup
  • Vegetable stock or water- ½ cup
  • Black raisins- 8
  • Walnut chunks, roasted - 1 tbsp
  • Green bell pepper/ capsicum- 2 tbsp
  • Yellow bell pepper- ¼ cup
  • Red bell pepper- ¼ cup
  • Sweet corn kernels, boiled- ¼ cup
  • Cucumber, peeled and cubed- ½ cup
  • Olive oil- 1 tsp
  • Lemon juice- 2 tsp
  • Fresh coriander leaves, chopped- 1 tbsp
  • Chilli flakes- ½ tsp
  • Salt and pepper- to taste
  • Lettuce leaves- as required

  • Roast Dalia in a non-stick pan till turns slightly reddish.
  • Bring to boil stock or water in an another pan.
  • Pour hot stock or water over hot dalia. Cover and cook for 5 to 8 minutes or till cooked. (or microwave for 3 min.), let it cool.
  • Mix all above ingredients with dalia in a large bowl.
  • Garnish it with lettuce leaves before serving.

Tip: You may add your choice vegetables, fruits and dry-fruits.

  1. this salad looks so colourful and tempting. The right thing to make when the weather is just too hot for spicy food.
