simple potato curry

When my husband leaves out of town on a business trip, I prefer eating some kind of tiffin for dinner and this is the time, I can explore some new side dishes. This is something my MIL used to make when nothing is available in fridge. Some how it takes just 10 mts to finish this side dish. I made this day before yesterday for dinner. My girls said, its little bit spicy but for me it was good. (:P) Here goes the recipe. Given quantity may be enough for one person (adult) and two kids :)

  1. Potato - 2 (thinly sliced)
  2. Carrot - 3/4 (slice it accordingly)
  3. Onion - 1/2 (slice it accordingly)
  4. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  5. Garam masala powder - 1/4 tsp (optional)
  6. Salt to taste
  7. Red chillies - 1/2 tsp (acc to taste)
  8. cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
  9. Fennel seeds - 1/4 tsp (optional)
  10. Coriander leaves - for garnishing
  11. Oil - 1 1/2 tsp
Pre heat oil in a pan, splutter cumin and fennel seeds, add sliced onion and saute for few minutes. Add potato and Carrots to it, add turmeric, garam masala and red chillies powder along with salt and sprinkle a hand full of water. Mix everything and let it be there for few mts till all the veggies are cooked. Garnish it with coriander leaves. Enjoy it with roti or with rice.
