Chop all vegetables finely.
Heat 1 tsp oil/ghee in pan/kadhai and roast rava for 5-10 mins. Stir in between to avoid browning of rava.

In same pan add little oil/ghee and season urad dal,channa dal ,mustard seeds,ginger and green chillies.
Add onions and saute till translucent. Add all other vegetables, salt and 4 cups of water.
