  1. Black eyed beans (white kaaramani) - 1/2 cup
  2. Winter melon - 1/2(chop it into and inch size)
  3. Pumpkin - 1/2 (chop it into one size)
  4. Green cillies - 2 or 3

Soak the beans overnight(or atleast 5 hours). Pressure cook it till 3/4th done. Now add the chopped pumpkin, winter melon and green chilles. Cook it with a little water and salt. When the veggies are cooked, turn off the stove. Do not mash the veggies. Now pour the coconut oil of top of it and add the fresh curry leaves to it. Some people even add coconut milk to it. If you want to add coconut milk, add it when everything is cooked and don't forget to turn off the stove while adding the coconut milk.
