8) 1 tbspn dried apricots or dried cranberries or raisins
9) 1/4 tsp black pepper
10)Salt to taste

Method -
1) Pressure cook the daliya with 1 cup of water.
2) Heat pan and dry roast the sliced almonds and pine nuts lightly. Keep aside.
3) Heat 1 tspn olive oil in the same pan. Add onions and green chillies and saute them till the onions are light brown.
4) Keep aside in a mixing bowl and let the onions cool down completely.
