A simple stirred fried vegetable which is quick to make and very tasty...It needs only a sprinkling of water while cooking...

This is one vegetable which can be made in a jiffy and so is like a instant item on my menu either when I am busy or when unexpected guests visit ones house.

The ingredients will always be found in an Indian kitchen which makes an added incentive to be cooked at the last minute.
I normally make this for my sons tiffin as he loves potatoes and as its a dry vegetable it does not leak , and is easy to carry... as he has to catch a bus-train-walk to reach his college by 8.30 in the morning.Traveling in India is not easy especially by train as you are jostled and pushed all over and with a bag on your bag its all the more tough...


3 Small potatoes sliced in medium slices
2 small onions sliced
2-3 cloves of garlic finely chopped
1/2 tsp red chilli powder or as per taste...
1/4 sp haldi powder
a little about1/4 tsp garam masala powder.
salt , a pinch of sugar...
you can add lemon juice which is optional
garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves


Take oil in a pan, add the sliced onion to it let it become a little soft.
Add the finely chopped garlic stir
then add the sliced potatoes and cook covered with a little sprinkle of water
when half cooked add the chilli powder, haldi powder and garam masala powder
Add salt, sugar and stir.
cook this potatoes are fully cooked but not mushy..
garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves.
serve hot with bread, roti or dosas
