Vegetable Aval (Poha) Uppuma

I make aval upma very often.  I try different types of Aval Uppuma. This is easy and quick to make also very tasty. Most of the time I used do Lemon Aval Uppuma. Kids also like it. This is light meal I always complement with some other item which is very high in protein be it tofu or yogurt with apple or Cottage cheese.

Onion - 1 (finely chopped)
Mixed Vegetables (Carrot, Beans, Peas) - 1 to 1 and 1/2 Cup
