1 inch ginger, chopped
1 medium sized tomato, finely chopped
1 or 2 green chilies, finely chopped
½ cup chopped potatoes
½ cup chopped carrots
½ cup shelled green peas/fresh or frozen
4 cups water
1 tbsp oil or ghee
1 tsp cumin

Heat oil or ghee in a pressure cooker.
Splutter the cumin first in the hot oil.
Add chopped onions and saute till they become transparent.
Now add chopped ginger, green chilies and saute for some seconds
Add tomato and saute for 1 minute.
Now add all the veggies and saute for 2 minutes and keep stirring.
Rinse the dalia and add to the veggies and stir for 3-4 minutes.
Add 4 cups water and salt
Stir and pressure cook for 10-12 whistles till the dalia is cooked well.
If the dalia has not cooked completely, then add some more water and pressure cook for a few whistles more or cook without the lid till they are softened and you get a porridge like consistency.
Garnish vegetable dalia with coriander leaves and serve hot or warm.
