Easy Mixed Vegetable

One of the reasons I love winters is the availability of all my favourite vegetables, cauliflower, carrots, peas all fresh, they are yum!!! Today I am here with this easy mixed vegetable side dish. Everybody knows that vegetables are good for health and a mixed vegetable dish is the easiest way to get all the goodness of many vegetables in one recipe. This is one of the recipes I learned during my college days. Ingredients used in this recipe are easily available. Hope you like it!
