– 1/4 cup Toor Dal (Pigeon Pea Lentils)
– 1/4 cup Rice
– Mixed vegetables (1/2 cup diced Pumpkins, 2 small Brinjals, 1 small Potato, 1 small Carrot)
– 1 medium sized Tomato, chopped
– 1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
– Salt to taste
– 1-2 Green Chillies, slit
– 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
– 3 cups Water

For Tempering:
– 2 tsp Oil
– 1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds
– 2 Dry Red Chillies
– A pinch of Asafoetida (Hing)
– Few Curry Leaves

1. Rinse the toor dal and rice under running water until the water runs clear.
2. In a pressure cooker, combine the washed dal, rice, diced vegetables, chopped tomato, green chillies, turmeric powder, and salt to taste.
3. Pour in three cups of water and mix well. Lock the lid in place and cook until three to four whistles.
4. Once the pressure releases naturally, open the cooker and mash the dal and rice mixture lightly.
5. Now prepare the tempering. Heat oil in a small pan and add mustard seeds. Once they start to splutter, add dry red chillies, hing, and curry leaves.
6. Pour this tempering over the cooked dal and rice mixture. Stir well to combine.
7. Your Dalma with Rice is ready to serve hot. One serving of this flavorful and nutritious Indian bowl would roughly contain 450 calories.

Enjoy this simple yet hearty one-bowl meal, flavored with the simplicity and soulfulness of Oriya cuisine. Perfect for a weeknight dinner or a leisurely weekend lunch!
