  • 1 tbsp coarsely pepper powder
  • 1/2 cup cooked yellow moong dal.
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • salt to taste
  • few curry leaves
  • 1tbsp coconut oil.


Boil all vegetables with turmeric powder and salt. Slit green chillies and  add .
Add pepper powder.
Cook the vegetables.When the vegetables are cooked add the cooked moong dal.
