Dalma (pigeon Pea With Vegetables In Orissa Style)
Dalma is a traditional dish of Orissa. It is a type of dal which is made with pigeon pea and different types of vegetables. This is very healthy.
I learned to make it from my aunty. She lives in Puri. She told me that in the Jagannath temple of Puri "dalma " is offered as bhog . People believe that Dalma is a favourite dish of Jagannath Dev.
In Orissa people make this with pigeon pea or bengal gram . But if you want you can also try this preparation with split green gram. In that case you'll have to dry roast the dal and then you should boil it.
