Self effort  

Posted in

Self-effort alone is responsible for whatever man gets here; when he is sunk in unhappiness, to console him people suggest that it is his fate. No one has seen such a fate or a god, but everyone has experienced how an action (good or evil) leads to a result (good or evil). Hence, right from one’s childhood one should endeavor to promote one’s true good (salvation) by a keen intelligent study of the scriptures, by having the company of the holy ones and by right self effort.

You will need:

Carrot - sliced
Green peas
Onion - finely sliced
Corn - optional
Coriander powder
Turmeric powder
Coconut paste
Sunflower oil
Coriander leaves - finely cut
Salt - to taste

Heat up water in a pan, add mixed vegetables. When it is half cooked add other stuffs (coriander powder, turmeric powder, coriander leaves, oil, and coconut paste, salt). Mix well. Actually you can add powders of your choice. Since I had the above two I used that, same with oil. 10 - 15 minutes of cooking will do. I was able to make it easily since I bought cut vegetables in packet and a small pack of coconut paste. Here are the pictures before heating up and after.
