Brinjal Capsicum Stir fry/Kathirikkai koda milagai poriyal

This is a simple stir fry that goes well with rice. Brinjal is one of my favorite vegetable, but M doesn’t like it (thatz how the world goes on, ain’t it?).So I try to incorporate it into sabzis in a way that he doesn’t find it or else it will taste so good that he doesn’t mind about it!!!He likes shimla mirch plus adding the spices, made him nod yes for the dish!!
Capsicum-3 medium, cubed
Onion-1 large, cubed
Brinjal-4 large, cut to match the size of other vegetables.
Chili powder- 1 tsp
Salt-as needed
Garam masala- ½ tsp
Oil-1 tbsp
Mustard seeds- ½ tsp
Cumin seeds- ½ tsp
How it Happened:
1. Heat oil in a pan, add mustard and cumin seeds. When they splutter add onion cubes.
2. When the onion becomes transparent, add the cut vegetables, simmer the flame and cook covered  for 7 minutes or until the veggies are half-cooked.
3. Remove the lid, add salt, chili powder, mix well and cook covered for another 5-7 minutes.
4. When the veggies are cooked, finally add garam masala mix well, cook for a minute and switch off  flame.

*Make sure not to overcook the veggies, else they will turn mushy.

*If u have maggi masala magic, skip garam masala and add a packet of maggi masala. It will add a different taste. But make sure to adjust the salt as the masala itself contains salt.
