You have been making porridge at home but we bet that this one is a totally different and unique recipe. Porridge cooked with spices like lentils is great

Dalia is a delicious dish that also happens to be really good for you. In India, those suffering from illness are fed Dalia because of its health benefits. But you don't need to be sick to enjoy this tasty dish.
