DALCOSO: Health Book :Day 77

Ok, before you get any ideas, lemme tell you DALCOSO is a dish. This is my experiment in the kitchen and the dish name has of course been christened by me. At last, after a long break from blogging, I am back to usual business. This is the 77th day of the year, so the 77th post of my YEAR HEALTH BOOK.

Daliya (oatmeal) can be really boring, yeah? Why not add fun to it and make it interesting? I returned home from work after a busy day. While looking at the jars in the kitchen, I felt like skipping dinner for today. So much is the ordeal to cook for a single person! However, daliya came to my rescue and a new dish was born. Dalcoso is a mix of Daliya, Corns and Soya bean :-)

Ingredients- Daliya (oats), A cup of sweet corns, a handful or cup of soya beans, 2 tomatoes& onions, a spoonful of oil and sesame seeds
Optional- Coriander leaves, green/red chillies, pepper

Prep time- 15 minutes

1. Pressure cook daliya, corns and soya beans for 8-10 minutes.
Meanwhile chop onions and tomatoes.

2. Heat oil in pan. Add sesame seeds to crackle. Fry onions and tomatoes.

3. Add daliya, corns and soya beans to the pan. Add a little water if you want to have it like soup. Add salt, pepper, green chillies to taste. Stir for few minutes.

4. Add coriander leaves to garnish. Serve hot.

A simple and healthy meal ready within no time. Needless to mention the nutrient value of this priceless dish, yet let me revise for the sake of all readers. Daliya is high in dietary fiberproteins  and very low on fat or calories.
Corn is rich in fiber, antioxidants and minerals.
Soya bean acts a source of protein, carbohydrates and healthy fat.
Lets make food interesting and life healthy.

Stay healthy stay blessed!
