Mix Veg - North Indian Style

My Mom used to make this mix veg that too without onion n garlic and that taste awesome.Its lil sweet n salty in taste which makes it different from other recipes.I tried it with onion n garlic and it too turned awesome but yaa it doesnt have the taste of my mom hands....

2 cups chopped mixed veggies (carrots, peas, beans, cauliflower etc.)
1 capsicum cut length wise
1 tomato chopped
1 onion cut length wise
1 cup cabbage chopped
1 tsp. ginger, finely grated
3-4 flakes garlic, crushed or grated
2-3 green chilli
1 Bunch Methi leaves(i use 2 block of frozen methi)
1 tbsp. coriander leaves
1 tsp. red chilli powder
1 tsp. coriander seed powder
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
3-4 pinches asafoetida
salt to taste
1 1/2 tbs sugar
2 tbsp. Mustard oil(U can use any other oil too,but mustard oil gives it a good/diff taste)
1/2 tsp. each cumin, mustard seeds

Heat oil in pan/kadahi,put 1 tbs of salt and make it real hot
TIP:By making oil hot the mustard oil smell will go away and by adding salt it will give a nice colour to vegetable)
Add both the seeds.
Allow to splutter,add asafetida.
Add garlic, ginger, onions, cook till onions are transparent.
Add capsicum, chopped veggies, cabbage,Green chilli and methi leaves.
Stir, add all masalas and sugar,if needed add 1/2 cup of water though veggie will leave sm water so be careful while adding water(i never add it).

Cover lid, allow to cook.
When Done garnish with chopped coriander.
Serve hot with ur choice of bread.
