Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 fresh green chillies, deseeded and chopped
  • A bunch of curry leaves
  • 2 onions, peeled and shredded
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • A pinch of ground cumin seeds
  • ½ teaspoon garam masala

Directions

Heat the oil in a pan and fry the mustard seeds for 2 to 3 minutes or until they start to pop.

    The potatoes took a long time to cook in this recipe. I recommend boiling them first before adding.
