  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 Green Chilli chopped
  • 1 Onion small , finely chopped
  • 1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste
  • 1 Tomato small , finely chopped
  • 1 cup Vegetables chopped - (I used mushrooms, beans, broccoli, capsicum)
  • 1 tsp Chili powder Red
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 cup Wheat Broken or Daliya
  • Salt to taste
  • 3/4 cup Water


  • In a pressure cooker, heat olive oil, and add green chillies, onions and ginger garlic paste to it. Saute for a few minutes till onions are pinkish in color and add tomatoes.
  • Once the tomatoes are partially cooked and start breaking down, add the rest of the vegetables and spices. Cook for 2-3 minutes and add the daliya. Dry roast this mixture for 2-3 minutes, add water and salt and put the lid and weight on the pressure cooker. Let this cook for 15 minutes. The pressure cooker should give out 3-4 whistles.
  • Let the steam out naturally from the cooker and serve hot. Tastes best with curd.


I love adding some grated cottage cheese to the daliya once cooked. It adds a wonderful creaminess to the dish.
Go bonkers with the vegetables. I've used anything and everything with this and it always tastes awesome.
This goes really well with other cooked vegetables as well and tastes almost like rice.
It's a great vegan one pot dish.
