Preparation:

Wash n chop veggies into cubes and soak in salt water.Drain the water and spread it on kitchen towel to absorb the water.

Heat a pan with enough oil for deep frying the veggies.Fry the veggies until they turn into golden colour and remove it on to kitchen towel.

Heat a pan again with 1tbsp of oil,add mustard+urd dal,crushed garlic and curry leaves.Once the seeds splutter add chopped onions along with salt and fry till onions changes its colour.Add chopped tomatoes along with turmeric pwd and stir well.cook with closed lid for few seconds,so that tomatoes becomes soft.
