A Healthy Breakfast
Want to prepare something healthy and filling for breakfast in a hurry? Here is a dish healthy enough, just right for a child above one years of age to an older member of the family. It is less in calories and rich in fiber and hence helps in digestion and also weight loss. It has all necessary vitamins and though you can't call it protein rich yet it has a portion of protein in it too. It is worthy of being consumed by diabetic and persons having high blood pressure. It is the Dalia Upma.
Dalia : 1 cup
Beans : 1/2 cup chopped
Carrot : 1/2 cup finely chopped
Peas : handful
onion : one large chopped
chillies : 2 nos chopped
ghee/oil : 1/2 table spoon
salt : as per taste
few mustard seeds, 2 bay leaves/few curry leaves, 1 dry chilli for saute
Heat a pressure cooker in the gas stove. Put ghee and when it is a little hot put mustard seeds, bay leaves/curry leaves and red chilli and saute for few seconds than put the onion. When the onion turns a bit golden put the vegetables and salt and fry for 2 mins. Than put the dalia and cook for 2 more minutes. Now, put water(the water should just cover the ingredients). Than pressure cook the whole thing till two whistles. Your dalia upma is ready. Once the lid of the pressure cooker opens, serve the upma with a cup of hot tea.
The whole process takes not more than 10 mins but the taste is awesome.
