An appetising combination of fresh veggies and protein-rich beans cooked in olive oil, which contains a blood cholesterol-lowering substance called 'squalene'. Antioxidants like 'quercetin' and 'selenium' found in onions protect the heart from free radical damage.
- Combine 1 cup of tomatoes, ½ cup of onions, potatoes, 3 cups of water and salt, mix well and pressure cook for 2 whistles.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid.
- Cool and blend in a mixer to a smooth purée. Keep aside.
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, add the remaining onions and sauté on a medium flame till they turn translucent.
- Add the cabbage and sauté on a medium flame for another minute.
- Add the remaining 1 cup of tomatoes, rajma, barley, salt and pepper powder, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes.
- Add the tomato-onion mixture, mix well and bring to boil.
- Serve hot garnished with roasted wheat bran.
