Vegetable Dalia

Since my childhood , I am very fond of Dal-Rice and Khichdi. Every kid feels that his/ her mom is the best cook . But I can bet on anything that my Mom makes the best Dal in this world. So I always ended up having an extra helping of the yummy dal and rice or khichdi. Me and my brother were supposed to do revisions after dinner or complete our homework. But after having rice ,many a times i used to feel sleepy. So my Mom used to make this Dalia which was light ,filling and tasty .Also one doesn't feel guilty after that extra helping :-P. So if you want to keep a check on your weight or want to eat something light , try this recipe now:
