A process has been developed for obtaining 84-88% yields of dalia of improved quality by using indigenously available low cost machinery—huller, chakki, sifter with suitable modifications in the grinding technique and sieving system. A comparative study of dalia thus processed with that of the market samples has shown that the total and acid insoluble ash contents ranged from 1.33 to 2.10% and 0.05 to 0.14% for market samples, while milled dalia has values of 1.22-1.59 and 0.03-0.07% respectively. Market samples required longer cooking time (9-12 min), as compared to 6-8 min of the samples obtained by the improved process developed. The water uptake was high (316-410%) in the case of dalia samples obtained from the above process as compared to low uptake (226-348%) of market samples. Medium hard wheat was found to be better for processing into dalia than soft white wheat in getting the higher yields and good texture of cooked product.
