This is very easy and healthy mixed veg curry.But really tastes good and goes well with rice and chapatti too.

Method:
Wash,clean and cut all vegetable.peel and cut potato and carrot into small pieces .Cut french beans into small pieces .
After the vegetables are cut cook them together adding little salt,green chilies,little turmeric powder and jaggary in pressure cooker/microwave.
Dry grind red chilies,mustard seeds and coconut together.what i do is first grind red chilies and mustard together in coffee grinder and then grind it with coconut in blender(as i have this juicer blender).the main purpose of doing that is that while grinding very negligible amount water should be used.





Take a pan add oil and all seasoning ingredients.when mustard start spluttering add mixed vegetable ,turmeric powder,salt,grounded masala and stir them properly.let it simmer for 3-4 minutes so that all water evaporate and masala is cooked and mixed properly.
