Now coming to todays recipe:

In Maharashtra, there are many dishes made especially on fasting days. To name a few Sabudana/Tapioca Khichdi, Sweet potato fry, Varaiche tandul (Samo rice) are just to name a few. These dishes are so delicious its really hard to fast with such food prepared :) I remember as a child, for me and my bro fasting was just an excuse to relish on all these fantastic dishes. Fasting was left only to my parents :) This potato sabji is something which we always ask our mom to prepare. It is very easy and tastes great just by itself or as side item.

Ingredients:
4-5 medium sized potatoes
1/2 cup roasted groundnut powder (little coarse)
3-4 green chillies cut lengthwise
2 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander leaves
2-3 tbsp ghee
salt

Method:
  1. Boil potatoes in pressure cooker till they are nicely cooked.
  2. Peel potatoes and mash them.
  3. In kadhai add ghee.
  4. When ghee melts add jeera, green chillies.
  5. Add potatoes, salt and groundnut powder. Mix well. Fry for 4-5 minutes.
  6. Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.
Preparation time: 20-25 minutes
