Breakfast, Main Course
(broken wheat or cracked wheat)
medium sized onion,
1 or 2
medium sized tomato,
fresh or frozen
or ghee (clarified butter)
salt as required
Heat oil or ghee in a 3-litre pressure cooker.
Keep the flame to medium-low. Splutter 1 teaspoon cumin first in the hot oil.
Add 1 chopped onion and saute till they become translucent on medium-low to medium flame.
Now add 1 inch finely chopped ginger and 1 to 2 finely chopped green chillies. On a low flame saute for some seconds or till the aroma of ginger goes away.
Add 1 finely chopped tomato and saute for 1 minute.
Now add ½ cup chopped potatoes, ½ cup chopped carrots and ½ cup of green peas (fresh or frozen). Saute for 2 minutes on low to medium-low flame. Keep stirring at intervals.
Rinse the dalia and add to the veggies. Stir for 3 to 4 minutes on a low flame.
Add 4 cups water and salt as required. Stir and pressure cook on medium flame for 10-12 whistles or till the dalia is cooked well. Timing will vary depending upon quality of dalia.
If the daliya has not cooked completely, then add some more water and pressure cook for a few whistles more or cook without the lid till they are softened and you get a porridge like consistency.
Garnish vegetable daliya with coriander leaves and serve hot or warm.
