3 medium Potatoes, peeled and diced to 1 cm cubes
1 small onion, finely chopped
2-3 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
2-3 Green Chillies, finely chopped
1 tsp Amchur/Dry Mango Powder
2 tbsp Coriander Leaves, finely chopped
Salt to taste

For Chokha(Tempering):
1 tbsp Oil (Preferably Mustard Oil)
1 tsp Paanchforan
2 Dry Red Chillies, broken

Heat oil in a pan and add broken dry red chillies and paanchforan. Sauté till the spices starts to pop and splutter.
To this add chopped onions and sauté for a minute and half.
Now add chopped garlic and green chillies and sauté till onions turn golden brown.
Mix in cubed potatoes and sauté for 3-4 minutes till they turn light brown.
Add ½-¾ cups of water, salt to taste. Cover and cook till potatoes are cooked well. Keep mixing the potato pieces in between so that they don’t stick to the bottom of pan. Add little more water in between till potatoes are well cooked but take care not to add more water as it is a dry curry/subji.
Mix in amchur and chopped coriander leaves and cook uncovered for another 4-5 minutes. Serve hot with rice or roties and enjoy.
