green chillies, 1 carrot cut into tiny cubes,
1/2 cup green peas, 6-8 curry leaves, Finely
chopped coriander leaves and 1 lemon.

2) Spices/Seasoning - 1 tsp mustard,
1 tsp fennel seeds,
1 tsp chilly powder,
1tsp turmeric powder,
1 tsp asafotida powder.

3) Flat rice - 3 cups (raw)
4) Sugar - 2 tb
5) Salt, Oil


Pour 3 tbs gingelly oil in a wok. When the oil becomes hot, add mustard and fennel seeds till the mustard seed starts spluttering and the fennel seeds turn brown. To this add the asafotida powder, curry leaves, green chillies, grated ginger and onion. Keep frying till the onion turns golden brown. Then add the other vegetables and add salt, turmeric, sugar and chilly powder. Keep frying and cover with a lid for a few minutes till the vegetables get cooked.

Mean while put the raw flat rice in a sieve, wash it in water and keep aside for few minutes. The flat rice will become
