goduma rava payasam

Broken wheat kheer/Goduma rava payasam/Dalia kheer is a tasty and nutritious kheer prepared with broken wheat. Broken wheat/Cracked wheat/Dalia/Lapsi  is one of the most sought healthy alternative for Rice. 

Broken wheat is not polished and so it contains all nutritional value of outer Bran layer. Weight watchers and people having sugar complaint prefer Broken wheat instead of Rice.
