Aloo Tamatar Sabzhi with Kasthuri Methi @ Potatoes, Tomatoes and Fenugreek Leaves

The usual thingy with chapati making - Mr Hubby makes them and I add up the dishes that goes with. 

I was so lazy to go out and get groceries plus it was Saturday normally a vegetarian day...I decided to use what ever is available from around fridge.  Thus this recipe which was from here  Original recipe calls for pressure cooker, but I used the usual snail way....just relaxing saturday mode...

My comments : simple and yet delicious

2 medium size potatoes
2 medium size tomatoes
1 medium size onion
1/2 tsp dried kasthuri methi
1/2tsp ginger garlic paste
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp cumin powder
3/4 tsp coriander powder

1/2 tsp garam masala
1/2 tsp of turmeric
chopped coriander leaves
oil
salt
water if necessary


Chapatis - moistened with ghee....

How to do:
  1. Chopped all ingredients
  2. Heat oil in a wok.
  3. Add in cumin seeds and ginger garlic paste and let it simmer
  4. Add in onions, saute on high heat and add in chopped tomatoes.  Mix well, cover lid and let it cook well and add little salt to soften it fast
  5. Add all the spice powders, stir together and slightly cover with the lid.. Let the moisture get into it back to get the tomatoes soft.
  6. Next add the potatoes along with the dried kasthuri methi, mix well and let it simmer till the potatoes are crispy.
  7. Add required amount of water and cook till potatoes are done.
  8. Add in chopped coriander leaves and serve...
