WHILE WAITING FOR MUNG BEANS TO GET DONE, HEAT 1/3 CUP OIL IN LARGE FRYING PAN. ADD ONIONS, GINGER AND GARLIC AND SAUTE OVER MEDIUM-HIGH FLAME UNTIL ALMOST BROWN.. ADD SPICES, BUT NOT SALT. IF THE MIXTURE STICKS TO THE PAN, ADD 1/4 CUP OF WATER AND STIR. WHEN NICELY DONE, COMBINE MASALA MIXTURE WITH COOKING MUNG BEANS. PREPARE YOUR VEGETABLES AND PLACE IN A SEPARATE BOWL. WASH YOUR RICE THOROUGHLY. ADD YOUR VEGETABLES AND RICE AT THE SAME TIME TO THE COOKING MUNG BEANS AND MASALA IN YOUR POT. BRING BACK TO A BOIL ON A MEDIUM-HIGH FLAME. AS SOON AS IT BOILS, TURN DOWN, COVER AND STIR EVERY 5-7 MINUTES (YOU ARE COOKING THE RICE AND VEGGIES AT THIS POINT SO KEEP IT COVERED IN BETWEEN STIRS). COOK FOR 20-25 MINUTES MORE IN TOTAL. ADD SALT TO TASTE
