  1. Take a kadai... put the washed and chopped vegetables in it. Then put salt and turmeric powder, let it boil for a few minutes till done....
  2. Yam at times takes time to cook so it can be cooked separately or start cooking it a bit earlier before adding the pumpkin and ash gourd.... When cooked turn off the gas.

  4. Now in a big vessel or kadai put the boiled channa. Add the cooked vegetables. Check salt and add if required, mix well and let it boil...
  5. Mash the chana little with the back of the laddle... add jaggery to this....mix well...
  6. Then pour the ground coconut paste... pour water and bring to required consistency...
  7. After it comes to boil....turn off the gas...
  8. Now in a tadka pan put coconut oil and when hot add the mustard seeds and after it splutters add dry red chilli, curry leaves and grated coconut. Kept aside for tadka....
  9. Fry well till it turns brown... Then pour this over the cooked channa and vegetables....
