This is a very famous mix of vegetables usaually prepared as sides with dal chawal or roti/paratha in the state of Uttar Pradesh specially western part of it. This mix is very nutritous & taste really good..here is the recipe..

Now add all the vegetables including tomato . Stir well. Cook covered for 15 min on slow flame.If there is any water left then cook on high flame without lid till all the water gets dried.

- I always prefer mustard oil in my vegetables & curries as its pungent taste & smell gives different aroma & flavor to food. You can use vegetable oil instead.
- It will taste even better if you add dill & fenugreek leaves in it.100gm each.
