Potatoes masala

For 3-4 servings:

½ kg potatoes, cubed
½ kg frozen peas
2 peppers, chopped
4 onions, chopped
4 tomatos, chopped
2 cm ginger, grated ( 1 tsp ginger powder)
2 teaspoons turmeric
2 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon garam masala
fresh chilli / chilli powder, to taste
1 tablespoon tomato pasta
2 tablespoons oil

Cook the potatoes in water with 1 teaspoon of turmeric. Drain the water.
Heat the oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. As they begin to pop add the onion and the green peppers. Stir fry for a few minutes ( 2-3) then add the remaining ingredients and the rest of the turmeric. Cook for another few minutes, stirring occasionally, if necessary add a little bit of water.

Add the potatoes, the peas and salt to taste and cook for another 2 minutes.

Serve with basmati rice/biryani and/or naan bread.

    Hi, this looks lovely and I’d love to try it – but I’m wondering how many it serves? The portions look large (4 onions for example) – I only cook for two people, so I’m guessing I would need to reduce the volume of ingredients, but I’m not sure by how much. Thanks.

      Hallo Clare, thanks! The quantities are for 3-4 servings, for twoo persons just halve the ingredients. Best regards, Fleur

    Thanks for replying so quickly, Fleur! I’m in the middle of making it now, I went with two onions and three tomatoes, but with the rest of the ingredients about the same amounts you’ve said. We’re feeling greedy, so we’ll probably manage it all anyway, ha ha 🙂 I can’t wait to try all your recipes!
