2 sprigs of curry leaves

1 tablespoon oil

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

1-1/2 teaspoon black gram dal

1-1/2 teaspoon Bengal gram dal

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

Salt to taste

Juice of half lemon


Cook the potatoes in pressure cooker, peel, and cut into small pieces. Chop the onions into half-moon shape. Heat oil in a wok and add mustard seeds. When they start to crackle add the black gram dal and Bengal gram dal and fry until they are golden in color. Add the chopped onions, green chillies, julienned ginger, curry leaves, chilly powder, and turmeric powder. Fry until the onions are brown. Now add the potatoes, salt, and coriander leaves and mix well. Fry for a while and remove from the fire and add lemon juice and mix thoroughly.

This potato sabji goes very well with dosa. This is the masala part of the masala dosa. This can be eaten with chapattis also.
