Mixed Veg Poriyal -  Can I say it's mixed veg Poriyal? Because I added only three veggies. But it's an option, you can add some veggies like cabbage to the list. It’s a very tasty and easy to prepare side dish.  I love to include in my lunch meal. Particularly with the combo of Kara kuzhambhu. I don’t know, but I always like the Poriyal and aviyal kind of recipes with vathal kuzhambhu and kara kuzhambhu rather than sambar. Let's stop here and back to the recipe, am drooling. This Poriyal preparation method has simple steps. Though its chopping time is long. So if you are going to prepare this on weekdays to pack your lunch, just finish this chopping work on last day evening by watching your Tv shows. Just pack it in an airtight box or zipped cover and place it in refrigerator. Then let it sit for 15 mins to reach room temperature before cooking.
