- 1/4 cup Foxtail Millet
- 1/4 cup Moong Dal
- 1 medium Tomato (diced)
- 1 medium Onion (chopped)
- 4 strings French Beans (diced small)
- 1 small Carrot (diced small)
- 1 small Green Chilli (finely chopped)
- 2 tbsp Green Peas

- 1/2 tsp Asafoetida
- 1 tsp Salt
- 1 tsp Coriander Powder

Wash and soak millets and moong dal for 30 min.
Use this time to prep – cut, dice, and chop all your veggies.
Heat ghee in a pressure cooker. Once hot, add cumin seeds (jeera) and allow to crackle.
Now add the chopped onions and sauté till translucent. Add the ginger-garlic paste and chopped green chilly.
Add the powdered masalas and spices, along with the diced tomato. Sauté while sprinkling a little water from time to time.
Once the mixture caramelises (starts to turn golden-brown in colour), add the remaining veggies, along with the soaked millet and dal. Mix thoroughly.
Add 2-and-a-half cups of water, and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
Garnish with chopped coriander, and serve hot.
