Country vegetables puzhukku/ curry

Today my amma taught me a different mix of vegetable puzhukku or side dish. We can make puzhukku with a single vegetable or tapioca or mixed veg also. We can have this with hot rice as a side dish. I love to eat with dosa also. Without onion garlic this puzhukku tastes so nice. Let us see how to make this.
