2. Peas - 1/2 cup

5. Onion - 1 
6. Tomato - 1
7. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
8. Oil - 1 tsp
9. Garlic paste - 1/2 tsp
10. Salt - to taste
11. Water - 1/2 cup

To Wet Grind
1. Coriander seeds/Dhania - 2tsp
2. Green Chillies - 3
3. Onion - 2tbsp

1. Cloves - 3
2. Cinnamon - 1 inch
3. Fennel seeds/Saunf - 1tsp
4. Elaichi - 2
5. Poppy seeds/Khus- Khus - 1 tsp
6. Walnuts - 3

Preparation Time!!
1. In a bowl, take carrot, peas, corn, potato & sprinkle water on the veggies & pressure cook it for one whistle & keep aside ( You could use beans too.. i didn't have it so used corn instead )

2. Add the ingredients mentioned in the 'To Dry Grind' table to a blender. Powder it & keep aside

3. Take a pan. Take oil, add onions,garlic paste sauté till it turn translucent, now add tomatoes and turmeric. Cook till tomatoes are mushy

4. As the tomatoes are being cooked, take the ingredients in 'To Wet Grind' table and add 1/4 cup water and make a fine paste. Keep ready

5. Once tomatoes are cooked, add the boiled veggies and mix well.Let it simmer for 5 minutes..the add the ground wet mixture. Additionally add 1/4 cup water

6. Let it simmer for another 5-10 minutes. Add salt & the dry powder(Step 2) and mix well. Remove off flame..

Adjust the water as per the gravy consistency you like :).. This goes well with Puri/Chappati or Rava Idli/Dosa..You must have had something similar in hotels & is quite famous in Bangalore darshani's ..
