Roast the sesame, coconut, groundnut and grind it into a coarse powder. Add the chilli, turmeric, garlic, date paste and salt and stuff the vegetables. Steam them till they are cooked. Make a sauce with the remaining masala (spice) and pour it over the veggies, add the lime juice on top, garnish and serve.


You can use a host of other vegetables, just make sure they all take almost the same time to cook or add in vegetables that need longer to cook first.
