Masala :
Fresh coconut - 1 small cup
Dalia (Putnala Pappu) - 1 handful
Green Chilli - 3,4 (small)
Gasagasalu (Poppy seeds) - 2 spoons
Coriander Leaves - 1 cup
Paste: Grind the above ingredients into a smooth paste adding very little water.

Method:
1. Peel the skin and cut potatoes, carrots and chow chow into medium size cubes. Also cut the beans.
2. In a pressure cooker, add the vegetables and 1 cup water, pinch of turmeric and pressure cook them for 2 whistles.
3. In a pan, add 1tbsp oil, add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves and dry red chillies and hing, once they start to splutter, add the boiled vegetables along with the water. Cook it uncovered in more than medium flame.
4. After the water evaporates, add salt and the masala paste.
