This dish is another one which has been on my to-do list forever now.  I saw this one on Venkatesh Bhat’s show and  it looked so simple and yum. 

It is a perfect example of an easy dish which is tasty as well as nutritious with all the veggies in it. Pair it with a simple raita and you are set for dinner.
