Who does not aware of vegetable bath!!! Its easy to make & tasty too. But few people think this is one of the boring dish because of all vegetable in it. But, When something spicy, it becomes favorite by itself.
I have a suggestion here. You need not add many vegetables here. Can keep to 2 varieties and also use panner and peas (mutter). When you have cooked rice and nothing to eat. This recipe helps in easy cooking and when you are bored of sambar and rasam, try this and share your opinions with me.

Cooked rice- Fluffy, 2 cups
Beans and Potato- cut into eatable size, both should be 1 cup todether
Cumin/Jeera- 2 tb sp.
Red chilli powder/sambar powder (the one used for bisi bele bath is apt) - 1 1/2 tb sp.
Mustard seeds and oil
salt to taste
Coriander leaves - to garnish
Green chilli- 1 or 2 (Optional. for more hot/spicy taste)
Curry leaves- 2-4
Jaggery or sugar- 1/2 tb sp.
Tamarind paste- 1/2 tb sp.

1. Keep cooked rice aside by spreading on a plate.
2. On a pan cook beans and potato or any other vegetables of 15 minutes. Open cooking is preferable than cooking in pressure cooker. This makes good taste. Keep it aside.  
3. On the other side, heat oin in pan, saute mustard seeds, curry leaves, green chillis and jeera.
4. Then add sambar powder, jaggery, tamarind and salt. Bring this to boil for 3-4 minutes.
5.Then add vegetables. Stir this for 6-8 minutes so that everything gets together well.
6. bring down the flame and add rice. Mix it properly with care, not to smash rice grains.
Now you can add coriander and serve it hot.

Cooking time: 20 minutes. Serves- 3
