  2. Add oil, mustard seeds, soaked dal and peanuts, cover the lid (having some hole) and microwave it for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add all veggies, curry leaves and 1 tablespoon of water, cover the lid and microwave it for another 2 minutes.
  4. Now add water and salt, cover the lid and microwave it for 4 minutes. (First microwave it for 2 minutes, stir and again microwave for 2 minutes).
