  • After they are half cooked, add cauliflower florets and cook till they are cooked completely. Do not let them turn mushy.
  • Drain and keep aside.
  • Blanch tomatoes in hot water. Peel off the skin, remove the seeds and chop them into pieces. (After blanching it becomes easy to remove the skin away).

  • Now add green peas and cook till they are almost done.
  • Mix 1 cup of milk with 2 tsp of corn flour and keep aside.
