Make a paste of “to grind” ingredients. Coarse paste will do.
Heat oil and add mustard seeds.
When it splutters, add curry leaves and then the paste and saute for 2-3 minutes.
Add turmeric powder and coriander powder and saute again for 1 minute.
Add tomato and mix well.
Add 1 cup water along with beans and potato. Add salt. (All vegetables can be added together but addition of cauliflower later ensure it retains its shape)
When it’s half cooked, add cauliflower and green peas. Mix well and cook covered till done.
