Onion- 1 chopped finely
Capsicum( I used red, green and yellow) – 1 cup
Peas – ½ cup( I used frozen)

Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
Tomato Ketchup – 1 tblspn or to taste

Coriander leaves for garnishing
Heat oil in a kadai. Add fennel seeds and allow them to pop.
Add onions, capsicum and mix well..Cook them for 2 mins.
Add salt, chilli powder, coriander powder, garam masala powder and mix well.
