Odia dalma recipe – no onion no garlic | how to make dalma in pressure cooker

Dalma is the most widely and frequently prepared recipe in every Odia household. With the combination of lentils and vegetables, dalma recipe is undoubtedly packed with proteins, vitamins and minerals making it a very healthy dish. I would say dalma is the king of all vegetarian recipes for Odias. I have prepared dalma using pressure cooker. With pressure cooker, dalma is very easy and quick to make. Traditionally it is made in earthen pots which enhance the flavor of this dish. One can savour this with rice and rotis, but I would strongly recommend having dalma with rice. The combination of rice and dalma is my favourite.

  • Cow ghee – 2 tbsp
  • Cumin seeds powder – 2 tsp
  • Curry masala – 2 tsp
  • Coriander leaves – 4 tbsp (finely chopped)
  • Garam masala – 1 tsp
  • Salt – 3 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – 2 tsp
  • Oil – 2 tbsp

Instructions

  1. Wash the Pigeon Pea (Toor dal) and soak in water for 20 mins.
  2. Put a pressure cooker on medium flame and add 2 tbsp oil. Once hot, add cumin seeds, cardamom, cloves, green chili, red chili and allow them to crackle for 10 secs.
  3. Add crushed ginger and 2 tbsp grated coconut and sauté for 2 min. Now add tomato and saute for 2 mins. To this, add cumin seed powder and curry masala and sauté for 3 min.
  4. Add the cut vegetables, salt, turmeric powder and mix well. Cover the lid (do not close) of the pressure cooker for 3 mins. Remove the lid and add the soaked Pigeon Pea (Toor dal/Harad dal) to the pressure cooker. Mix well.
  5. Cover the lid again for 3 mins. Remove the lid, mix the contents well and add water. Be sure to add enough water to cover the vegetables. Close the pressure cooker lid tightly and wait for two whistles.
  6. After two whistles, remove the pressure cooker from the flame and keep it aside. After some time, all the steam will come out and the lid will loosen automatically. Do not be in a hurry to remove the steam by yourself, otherwise the vegetables will not be able to soak the spices present in the water. The Dalma will lose its taste.
  7. Open the pressure cooker and add ghee, coriander leaves, garam masala and grated coconut. Mix gently.
  8. Serve hot with rice/roti/phulkas.

    I liked it. I always used to listen about dalma-dalma-dalma. When I ask Odia friends about how to prepare, They used to tell you can’t prepare at home easily, it needs lots of ingredients and if you miss some actual taste will not come up.

    One day one of my Odia friend has prepared this at home and I liked it like anything, can’t explain. This time I gonna try this at my home on my own on this coming weekend. Your recipe blog going to help me. I Will share you the feedback once prepared.
    Thanks.
