make this easy to prepare dish

  1. Heat oil in a large frypan on medium-high. After 1 minute remove from heat and immediately add 3–4 seeds from Spice Pack #3 and mix. Seeds should crackle (see QR code below for video). If seeds do NOT crackle, heat oil a bit longer and repeat. If seeds crackle, add the rest and stir and cover immediately.
  2. When crackling subsides, add Spice Pack #4 and return to medium low heat. When Spice #4 turns golden brown, turn heat to low. Add Hot Chili, if desired, and optional Spice Pack #5, and mix.
  3. Add vegetable, ½ cup water and mix thoroughly with spices. Cover and cook over medium low heat (add salt after 5 minutes), stirring occasionally. If pan dries out, sprinkle a little water. Cook time—cabbage/cauliflower 10 minutes; carrots or peas 15 minutes; beans 20 minutes.
  4. When vegetable is cooked but firm, remove cover and allow excess water to boil off. Add Spice Pack #6 (optional) Mix well and serve.
