  • ginger chilli paste to taste
  • 1 red chilli
  • 2-3 curry leaves
  • salt to taste
  • turmeric to taste
  • Steam the mixed vegetables (beans, carrots, potatoes and peas) so that they are just done (not over cooked) and the colours are vibrant.
  • In a heated pan add mustard seeds.
  • When they splutter turn off the flame and add hing and then turmeric and dry roast. When the smell permeates add curry leaves and finally mix in the steamed vegetables, ginger chilli paste and fresh coconut.
