A colourful, delicious and nutritious side dish for rice, roti, paratha or chapati. Great way to get the kids to eat vegetables.
The photograph of the recipe has been taken using Asus ZenFone 5. Zenfone 5 comes with a 2GB Ram, 8 MP camera and a 5 inch capacitive touchscreen. The OS is Android 4.3 (Jelly Bean) and can be upgraded to 4.4 (Kitkat). The Intel Atom Processor and with the 64 GB expandable storage capacity option makes it a powerful, sleek phone packed with features.
