This is a very easy and fast recipe.  We all love it very much.

1 med beetroot cut into bite size pieces
1 onion chopped roughly
1 small tomato
1 drumstick cut in 1 inch pieces(Optional)
1 green chilli slitted through
1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp Coriander seeds powder
1 tbsp chopped cilantro
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
1 tsp Jeera/Cumin Seeds
Few curry leaves

In a kadhai, heat oil. Add mustard & cumin seeds.  When they crackle, add curry leaves and onion and
green chilli.  Add the chopped beetroot, drumsticks and mix together.  Add all the spice powders and the eggplant pieces.
Place the whole tomato in the center and sprinkle the salt.  Put a lid on the kadhai. Let the tomato and the veggie cook.  The veggies should cook in the juice of tomato.  After 5 minutes, give a big stir and close again.  Repeat till the veggies are cooked.
