  • Heat the Instant Pot in 'SAUTE MODE' and add oil. Add mustard seeds and as they start to crackle add onions.
  • Add frozen peas and carrots.
  • Sauté for 2-3 minutes until carrots are fork-tender.
  • Add tomato and red bell pepper.
  • Add daliya/cracked wheat.
  • Time to add salt and all the spices.
  • Pour in water.
  • Mix it well.
  • Close the lid with the valve/whistle in sealing position. Change the Instant Pot setting to 'MANUAL OR PRESSURE COOK MODE' and allow it to cook for 6 minutes on high pressure.
  • After the Instant Pot beeps, do a 'Quick Pressure Release'. A quick pressure release is when you bring the valve/whistle to the venting position and allow the steam to release quickly.
  • After the PIN (close to the valve) drops in, carefully open the Instant Pot. You will find all - cooked Daliya. Fluff it with a fork, add lemon juice and serve hot.

 - This savory cracked wheat cereal pilaf/ daliya is a perfect make-ahead breakfast and a staple in my house. I regularly make a big batch of daliya and freeze in individual portions. 
- It freezes beautifully and keeps well for 2 weeks in your freezer. In the morning, simply defrost a serving size and reheat with an extra splash of water.
