Corn Daliya Khichdi preparation method: (For 3 people)

Heat a pressure cooker and add 2 tablespoons of oil into it. I prefer adding mustard oil. Add cumin seeds and mustard seeds into oil and let them splutter then add asafoetida. Put green chilies and add all chopped veggies into it.

Then add corn daliya and stir-fry for 2 to 3 minutes all ingredients. Add chopped tomatoes and stir-fry everything well. Then add washed split green gram into it and mix everything well. 

Add water, salt, and turmeric powder. If you want you can add a pinch of black pepper as well. Close the lid of the cooker and wait until 2 whistles on a medium flame. After this, open the lid and check if more water is required.
