Heat the oil and add cumin seeds, once they start to splutter add finely chopped onions and saute them until they are translucent.
Add the potatoes and sweet potatoes and lightly fry them.
Add ginger and garlic paste and then add chopped tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes on medium flame.
Add all the spices and mix it together and let the mixture cook 5-10minutes.
Add the rinsed red lentils and other vegetable and mix well together.
