To prepare this vegetable masala Maggi, first I seasoned the mustard seeds and green chilies in oil. Then I sautéed the onions until they turned soft. Once they turned soft, I mixed in the tomatoes and allowed them to turn mushy.
Following that, I stirred in all the vegetables for 2 minutes or until they turned slightly soft. Then I added the Maggi tastemaker and gave a good mix. After mixing, I poured in the water and allowed it to boil for 1 minute. And then added the Maggi noodle cubes and gave a slight mix.
