Tomato Daliya

An easy daliya recipe to help one lose weight while eating healthy and starving oneself. Tried substituting cracked wheat for rice in the Andhra Tomato rice recipe. This one can be adapted to suit those kiddie tastebuds by skipping/reducing the quantity of chillis used and adding a tiny bit of sugar.

The proportion of water can be varied to give it a porridge or fluffy consistency. Read on for the recipe -

Preparation Time - 20 mins

Ingredients -

  • 1/2 cup daliya
  • 2 tomatoes
  • 1 sprig curry leaves
  • 1/5 tsp mustard seeds
  • a pinch of asafoetida
  • a pinch of turmeric
  • 1-2 green chilis
  • 2-3 garlic flakes
  • 1/2 tsp oil
  • 2 tsp roasted peanuts
  • salt to taste

Preparation - Dry roast the daliya or cracked wheat till it gives off a sweet smell.

Cooking - Cook the daliya with 1 1/2 cup water, turmeric and salt in a pressure cooker for 3-4 whistles.

Heat the oil in a wok. Add the mustard seeds folowed by the asafoetida, curry leaves, green chilis and peanuts.
Once the peanuts are done popping, add the garlic and fry to golden .

Add the chopped tomatoes and sprinkle a little salt over them. Cook till mushy.

Add the cooked daliya and mix in. Stir for 2 mins.

Remove from the flame and garnish with fresh cilantro.

Serve hot.

Note - I had some already roasted and crushed peanuts which I added at the end to retain their crunch.
