Take the cover off, spread the green peas and corn (if you are going to use frozen veggies, put them in a colander and run some warm water over them); add diced tomatoes all over the pan (I used canned tomatoes, if you want to use fresh tomatoes add it after you fried the potatoes and stir a few times). Cover and cook for 15 minutes.
