STEP 5: Add the grinded daddawa (potash) and seasoning cubes with your salt too. Cover to cook for 25 minutes.

Swallow that Goes with Miyar Lalo Best
Preferably, take it with Tuwon Shinkafa or Tuwon Masara. You could also take it with Teba (Eba), Tuwon Semo, Tuwon Dawa, and other swallows of your choice.
How to Serve Miyan Lalo
Miyan Lalo is best served hot with a glass of chilled water or your favourite beverage. Interestingly, you could even take it alone.
Occasions to Serve Miyan Lalo Best
It can be taken as any of the 3 basic daily meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) but preferably, lunch and dinner when it’s fresh. When it is the remnant of the previous day, you could take it as breakfast in form of dumame (double fire)
How to Store Miyan Lalo
When refrigerated with constant power supply, it can last for days. However, in the absence of a refrigerator, you could warm it morning and evenings. Doing so will make it last a few more days compared to when refrigerated. To avoid all of these and for convenience, you could just make just enough for the present need.
Nutritional Value of Miyan Lalo
Miyar Lalo recipe is low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals, including vitamins A and C, riboflavin, folate, and iron.
Furthermore, it appears to contain larger levels of the above vitamins and minerals. This is due to the fact that a cooked cup of jute leaves contains almost three times the amount of leaves.
If you carefully follow the above procedures carefully, you should be able to arrive at the actual Miyar Lalo recipe you intend to have. As you have seen, it isn’t difficult at all.
