This is my contribution to Pooja's this week veggie"POTATO"

Potato-2 medium size
Peas-1cup(fresh or frozen)
Tumeric powder-1/2tsp
Red chilli powder-3tsp
Salt-As per taste
For Seasioning:
Mustard seeds
Broken urad dhal
Curry leaves-few


Season Mustard,Broken urad.dhal in oil. Add Hing,curry leaves,garlic.

Now slowly add chopped onion,fry for a while start adding tomato,potato,peas one by one.

Keep frying for sometime, then add tumeric, chilly, salt to the receipe, mix nicely.

Once you feel it is mixed evenly add 1glass of water and close the lid.

Leave the receipes on slow flame, for atleast15-20minutes.

Periodically keep stirring the gravy inbetween, you can find oil on the top layer seperated from receipe(this is the indication, all the ingredients are cooked well),

Now without lid, keep on flame for fewminutes, to get thick consistency.

Off the stove, garnish with corriander and serve.

It is very easy receipe, which goes well with Rotis,South Indian tiffin varieties like Dosai, Idly .Even you can mix with boiled rice , which is perfect for lunch box.

If you wish to add more vegetables,you can add cauliflower,carrot along with peas.

Thanks, i tried to leave comment in you blog, it is not allowing.Let me post here.

Very happy to see you after very long time, hope you would have enjoyed your long break.

Cake with fruit really looks gr8 and yummy. Even i have tried my first cake with froasting last saturaday for my niece b'day.

Everyone liked it especially of froasting layer and taste, as we all were very worried about more creamly.
I planned to before myself as per our desire.....it was a big hit,let me post that in short.
