Dalia (Bulgur) Muffins

Dalia (bulgur) is a popular and very healthy breakfast cereal in North India, made with whole wheat grits or broken wheat. Usually it is made either as a sweet dalia kheer or as savoury dalia, today I would like to share with you a recipe of baked savoury muffins. Its a very easy recipe and a great breakfast option.


Dalia (Bulgur), uncooked - 1 cup

Eggs - 2 large
Onion, chopped - 1 medium
Mozzarella cheese, shredded -1 cup
Garlic, minced - 2 teaspoon
Fresh basil, chopped - 1/2 cup (or 2 tablespoons dried)
Cherry tomatoes, diced - 1/2 cup
Capsicum, diced - 1 cup (I have mixed red, yellow and green as it adds colour as well as flavour)
Salt as per taste
Lemon Juice - 1 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon of red chilli flakes.
1 teaspoon dried oregano


Place the dalia and two cups of water in a covered pot. Bring to boil and then simmer for 20 minutes or until dalia is tender. You could add a teaspoon of lemon juice to avoid the dalia grains from sticking to each other.

Pre- heat the oven at 180 degree Celsius or 350 degree Fahrenheit.

Mix together all ingredients,in a medium mixing bowl.

Distribute mixture into a greased mini muffin tin, you could even use individual muffin cups filling each cup to the top (one heaping tablespoon each), and press down gently to compact.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the pan.

Enjoy warm with sauce for dipping.
