Procedure

  1. Take oil in a wok and put it on the burner to heat .
  2. Once hot, add mustard seeds and hing .As soon as they begin to crackle add potatoes , carrots and cauliflower . Mix well . Cover and cook for  5 to 10 minutes or until the veggies are half done .
  3. After that , add french beans ,cabbage and green peas . Mix . Then add the dry spices and salt .
  4. Then add tomatoes and mix . Cover and cook . After 5 mins , remove the lid and stir. We do not want to overcook the veggies or else they lose their brilliant colour.
