List of Ingredients
Serves 4-5 persons
- 1.5 cups raw dalia
- 2 medium-sized Carrots
- 1 bunch of Green Beans or Long Beans
- 1 Medium sized Onion
- 1 Medium sized Broccoli
- 1 Large Tomato
- 4 cups of water
- Salt to taste
- 2 teaspoons cumin seeds or jeera
- 1.5 teaspoons of turmeric powder
- 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil
Method of Preparation – 20 mins
Preparation Time – 5-7 mins
- Finely chop the carrots, beans, onion, and tomato and keep aside without mixing them.
- Break the broccoli with hands into smaller – 1-inch pieces.
- Heat the pan and put ghee in it. We used a pressure cooker. You can also use a rice cooker for this recipe.
- Once the ghee is a little hot, add the cumin seeds and let the seeds crackle.
- Add the chopped onion. Keep stirring till it turns golden brown.
- Now add the dalia and lightly roast the mix for 5 mins in the cooker.
- Add the rest of the vegetables, salt, and turmeric and mix well.
- If you are adding lentils, add them at this stage. The amount of water required will also increase by 3 times the amount of lentils by volume.
- Add water and close the pressure cooker.
- Let 2-3 whistles come before closing the heat. If using a rice cooker, let the mix cook fully in a setting for soft rice. If using a pan, let the mix cook on low-medium heat for about 20 mins. You may need to add more water for a pan.
- The amount of water and time of cooking will vary with the cooking vessel with pressure cooker requiring the least amount of water and cooking time and pan requiring the most of both.
- Serve hot and enjoy!
