  1. Wash and cut vegetables as indicated. Take a wok. Add oil. Warm, then add the onions.  Sauté the onion for a few minutes or until the rawness disappears. Add the turmeric powder, cumin and coriander powder.  Sauté along with the onions.  Add the chili powder as well. Add the tomatoes. Mix everything well and cook for a couple minutes. 
  2. Now add the beans.  Let it cook for a few minutes.  Then add the potatoes.  After they are both at least half cooked add the remaining vegetables.  After the vegetables are cooked to your taste (some like them just 3/4 cooked, some like them well cooked), add the salt.  At the very end, add the garam masala.  Stir it in and let it remain on the heat for a few additional minutes.  Say about 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.  Spread the chopped coriander.  Stir and serve with Indian breads.
