Oats Moong Mixed Veggies Khicdi

I instantly fell in love with recipe and the way oats has been used in this recipe. Thank you Priya for such a lovely recipe. This recipe is light on tummy delicious and ohhh so healthy... I can write pages and pages on this yummy one pot recipe.
I have slightly modified the recipe according to my taste, keeping in mind the original recipe. Here you go

You will need
2 cups Oats Roasted( I used Quaker quick cooking)
1 cup Yellow moong dhal
1 cup mixed veggies( I used alu,carrot,french beans and green peas)
Salt as per taste
Turmeric 1/2 tsp
Oil 1 tsp
Cumin seeds and Black peppercorns 1 tsp each
Onions 2 Finely chopped
Finely chopped garlic 1 tsp
Curry leaves few
Grated Ginger 1 tsp

Wash and soak the moong dhal for 30mins in water.
Heat oil add cumin seeds, when it splutters add chopped onion, ginger and garlic and sauté until turns pinkish.
Now add the mixed veggies, peppercorns, turmeric, salt and cook for 3-4mins.
Now add 3-4 glasses of water, add the soaked moong after draining the water, and roasted oats.
Pressure cook for 2 whistles and your done.
Serve hot with any spicy chutney or can be served as it is.
You can even add a tsp ghee before serving.

The original recipe had ccoked moong dhal and the entire process was done in an open pan.
I took to soaked moong dhal and pressure cooker method, which worked well. Either ways the dish tastes yumm!!
