Dahi Daliya

Summer meals cool "Dahi-Daliya"

Special thanks to my friend Sharmila Dixit for sharing nice healthy recipe.

This is a healthy cooling complete summer meal. Daliya works as my substitute for rice since I love low carb meals but want a filled tummy.
The low carb combined with good fat and proteins of your homemade yogurt is a perfectly fulfilling summer special.

2 cups of wheat Daliya
1 cup cold dahi or homemade yogurt
1/2 cup cold milk
1 cucumber finely chopped
1 carrot finely grated
2 green chillies finely chopped
1/2 inch ginger finely chopped or grated
A handful of curry leaves/kadi patta
A handful of coriander finely chopped

For the seasoning:
Half teaspoon jeera/cumin
Half teaspoon rai/mustard seeds
Half teaspoon hing/asofetida
5 to 6 stuffed sundried chillies/ sandgi mirchi (optional)
Salt to taste
2 teaspoon oil for seasoning

How to prepare:
1. Dry Roast the Daliya in a frying pan for 5 min stirring continuously to avoid burning. The daliya emits a fine aroma once roasted.

2. Wash it and Pressure cook it for 3 whistles with enough water like cooking rice. Remove the cooked daliya in a bowl. Allow it to cool.

3. Prepare the seasoning by shallow frying the stuffed chillies in a spoon of oil until they turn darker in color. Avoid burning by stirring constantly. Add to the cooled daliya.
4. Splutter jeera and mustard with hing in another spoon of oil. Add green chillies; ginger; curry leaves and lightly fry  for 1 minute. Add to daliya.

6. Add the curd and milk to the cooled mixture and mix together. Add a little more curd, milk and a little water to the mix if the consistency is too dry. Keep it semi liquid since daliya absorbs a lot of the liquid.
7. Add salt to taste and Garnish with cucumber carrots and coriander.
8. Serve with roasted or fried papads and your favourite pickle.
