This is an easy and a healthy stir fry side dish made of chicken and few mixed veggies. I added some sambar powder for a South Indian flavour. It goes very well with either rice or chapatis. You can add any other veggies of your choice and a different spice flavour according to your preference. It can also be served with noodles or pasta. So make this colourful stir fry and enjoy a simple meal with your loved ones.
