Add in onions, green chillies and saute for a min.

Add in all chopped vegetables and saute it for 5 mins.

Now add in salt and mix well. 

Add in semiya and mix well. Roast it in the oil for 2 min. 

Now start sprinkling the water and keep tossing. Cook on a low heat. I sprinkled around 1.5 cup of water. You may need less as the variety of semiya you are using. You can cover the kadai with a lid and cook it on a low heat. Taste and check whether it is cooked.

Add in coriander leaves and fluff it up. Serve with chutney.
