vegetable daliya / broken wheat upma

This recipe is very healthy and delicious,we usually make daliya when we want to have light food and if somebody is not keeping well,specially that time daliya makes wonders,but now a days trying and adding vegetables to all possible dishes is become must.My husbands's naani ( grand mom ) makes simple daliya with broken wheat adding moong dal everytime so that it becomes more healthy and the consistency gets little thick,so i adapted her method of daliya adding vegetables to it and the results are just mind blowing,we have this in our breakfast and sometimes for dinner as well.One of my friend had never made daliya and she always wanted this recipe and when i made this yesterday for our dinner i remembered her and so just for her i have posted this recipe so soon .
ingredients :
1 cup broken wheat/daliya
2 tbsp split moong dal (yellow moong dal ),optional
1 cup mix vegetables chopped( carrot,peas,french beans,potato,onions )
1 tbsp ground nuts
1 green chilli chopped
1 tsp red chilli pwd
1/2 tsp turmeric pwd
2-3 curry leaves chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
salt to taste
lemon juice to taste
chopped corriander leaves
1 tbsp oil/ghee.
method :
Wash moong dal and keep aside.Heat oil in pressure cooker,add mustard seeds,curry leaves,green chillies,ground nuts,mixed vegetables and fry for a while.Add broken wheat and fry till reddish brown in colour,add all the dry masalas and moon dal,fry for a while.Add 4-5 cups of water and pressure cook on medium flame till done ( i take around 3-4 whistles ).Serve hot adding little ghee over it and garnish with corriander leaves and lemon juice.
