Get Healthy With Multi-Grain Dalia
Bored with usual breakfast items? Balancing health and taste is difficult isn’t it? Have you ever tried a wholesome food at breakfast like Multigrain Dalia?
It is a wholesome food specially for pregnant and nursing mommies.
Back in 2010 when I was pregnant first time, I was working in Tokyo. Cooking in morning was always a boring and time consuming task. But I knew I must have enough and nutritious breakfast. During pregnancy once I came to India for vacation. My father recently had been through by-pass surgery, used to have this Patanjali’s Multigrain Dalia nearly every morning. I thought it will be usual healthy and not so tasty breakfast, but when I tried it first time I loved it. It has perfect combination of grains and some taste makers like Ajwain and Sesame. It is tastier and healthier than usual whole wheat only Dalia. Also it is usually made little runny and hot bowl of Pushtahar Multigrain Dalia cooked with vegetables is all in one food for a energetic start of your day. I took few packets with me to Tokyo and started using it for my breakfast regularly.
Let me tell you one thing, I am not at all associated with Patanjali and I do not get any money from anyone for recommending this product. I am just sharing my experience with you.
This multigrain dalia if cooked with vegetables is a perfect breakfast for everyone. It is delicious too. It gives u longer lasting energy, helps u keep full longer and offers your body with more nutrition in the form of minerals and vitamins.
Patanjali Pushtahar Dalia contains wheat, rice, pearl millet, split green grain, sesame seeds, and ajwain (carom seeds). Wheat and rice is rich in fiber and Ajwain as anti-bacterial properties which boosts the efficiency of the digestive system. It has carbohydrates which gets digested slowly hence maintaining ideal level of glucose. Bajra/ Pearl millet contains phytochemicals which helps to lower cholesterol. This food is ideal for diabetic and cholesterol patients. The maker also claims that this food item contains vitamins, omega-6 fatty acids, antioxidants, flavonoids, dietary fiber which promotes good health
It is one of ideal food for breastfeeding mothers and expectant mothers. If you are a working pregnant woman/nursing mother then this is one of ideal food for you. Its easy and quick to make and a wholesome food.
You can use this food item in various ways but I like it in Khichadi form.
Following recipe can be tried for a perfect breakfast:
INGREDIENTS : Multigrain dalia, Onion, Ginger garlic paste,1 Tomato, Cut vegetables of your choice, Salt, Turmeric powder, Red chili powder, 2tbs oil and water as per your choice of thickness.

Step 2- Add ginger garlic paste and tomatoes and stir them for 2-3 minutes.
Step 3- Add cut vegetables like cabbage/carrots/capsicum/green peas.

Step 7- Take 2-3 whistles and open the pressure cooker after some time.
Step 8- Multigrain Dalia is ready. Serve it hot and garnish it with onions and coriander leaves.
Use of pressure cooker is not must; any other vessel can also be used. But it will take more time than pressure cooker to cook.
Play around with your garnishing; Dry Fruits can also be used.
It is so easy and doesn’t even take much time to prepare, so sometimes I make it for my lunch or dinner too. It is so healthy and tasty that my husband and kids also eat it regularly for breakfasts sometimes as an evening snack.
The experts also suggest that a protein-rich, complex carbohydrate-rich breakfast like Multigrain Dalia is very important-and probably the opposite of what most people do.
Where to buy: Patanjali shops, try some other makers products if available at near by grocery shops, recently organic food makers have these kind of food items, you can even make it at home yourself. It is easy and you can make your own favorite version.
