Tips:
Roasted peanuts can be replaced by roasted cashews.
Adjust green chillies and red chillies to your taste.
Add vegetables of your choice. I have used carrots, beans, potatoes and green peas. 
Bachelors can use frozen vegetables and to quicken the process cook the vegetables separately in microwave.
