This is a simple yet delicious side dish to go with rotis or rice. Any combination of vegetables that go well together can be mix and matched in this recipe.
2 onions, finely chopped
2 potatoes, peeled and cubed
2 carrots, peeled and cubed
30 beans, stringed and chopped into 1/2 inch bits
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp chana dal / Bengal gram
1 tsp urad dal / skinned black gram
1 tsp cumin seeds
* Heat oil in a pan and add the tadka ingredients.
* When mustard starts to splutter and dals start to turn reddish, add onion. When it turns translucent, add the chopped vegetables and salt. Cover the pan and cook until the vegetables are done. If the vegetables are sticking to the bottom of the pan, sprinkle a tbsp of water and continue to cook. Next add the chili power, mix well and cook for a couple of minutes.
