Hi Friends,since last week i was not feeling well because of sever cold n cough.So i can't done the blogging.At the same time for my daughter laky the school have given 2weeks holidays as she completed her 1st term,managing two kids in the home n cooking had became very difficult.

Salt to taste

To grind:

Preparation:

Peel the skin of potato's and cut into small pieces and boil for 10mints along with turmeric Pwd,because it cooks fast if we add turmeric Pwd OR you can wash and cut potatoes into half and pressure cook for 3whistles.

Heat a pan with oil,add cumin seeds along with spices once they pop up add chopped onions and fry till they turn into golden colour.Add ginger garlic paste and fry for few mints till raw smell goes out.

Add chopped tomatoes and cook with closed lid till they become soft.Then add the cooked potato's along with chilli n coriander pwd and fry for few mints and cook with closed lid for 5mints.Add 11/2cup of water with required salt and stir well and again cook on medium flam.
