Khyati's Health-O-Meter Says:

Millet’s are the extremely good source of fiber and protein compared with white rice. Proso millet is a healthy grain and alternative to rice. Do include millet in your daily diet for more health benefits to stay healthy.

INGREDIENTS:
  • Proso millet - 1/2 cup 
  •  Moong daal - 1/4 cup
  • Salt, to taste

DIRECTIONS:
Step 1 Wash the proso millet thoroughly in running water a couple of times, or till the water runs clear. Drain out all the excess water. Soak the millets in just enough water to cover them, for at least an hour. Keep aside. Step 2 When the millets are done soaking, wash the moong daal in running water a couple of times, or till the water runs clear. Drain out all the excess water. Keep aside. Step 3 Set a pressure cooker bottom on high flame. Add in the ghee, and let it melt. Add in the mustard, and let it splutter. Now, add in the cumin seeds and asafoetida. Let them stay in for a couple of seconds. Step 4 Drain out all the water from the soaked millets, and add them to the pressure cooker. Step 5 Add in the washed and drained moong daal as well, along with salt to taste, turmeric, chopped onions, carrot, capsicum, green peas, tomatoes and green chillies. Step 6 Add in 3 cups of water. Mix well. Close the pressure cooker, and put the whistle on.  Step 7 Allow3 whistles. Let the pressure release naturally. When the pressure comes down entirely, open the cooker. Mix in the finely chopped coriander. Step 8 Serve it piping hot, with raita of your choice or curd.
