1 green chilli
2 carrots (finely chopped)
¼ kg French beans
1 cup chopped cabbage

1tbsp grated coconut
To temper:
1 tps Oil
½ tsp mustard seeds
1tsp urad dal
¼ tsp channa dal
2-3 dry red chillies
Pinch of asafetida

How to make it

  • Wash all the veggies and finely chop it and keep aside.
  • Wash and soak the moong dal in a cup of water for 15 minutes and cook it till it turns soft.
  • In a wok heat oil and temper the items given. Once the urad dal and chana dal turns light golden brown add the onions and sauté till it turns translucent.
  • Throw the green chillies and sauté.


  • Now add the chopped veggies one-by-one and mix well.
  • Sprinkle some water to the veggies and allow it to cook further. Add salt at this stage and check for the spiciness.

  • Cover with the lid and cook till the veggies turn soft.
  • At this stage add the cooked moong dal and stir well.
  • Switch off the flame and add the grated coconut to the veggies.

Notes:
Take care not to overcook moong dal. I used microwave oven to cook the dal. It took about 1-2 mins for me to cook.
