You yummy side dish is ready to serve with roti, paratha, poori, naan or rice dal combo. In every way it tastes great.
I prepared it without using lid to cover and cook as I love my veggies to be little crunchy but if you want your veggies to be perfect soft then can cover the wok and cook till veggies are nice soft and tender.
You can use any veggies of your choice and as per availability.
