Festival day??? No problem...

Vrat day???  No problem...

here is a very flavorful, No Onion-no garlic recipe, by my Co-sister's daughter-in-law, who recently visited me, and made in malpatskitchen.....then I jotted the ingredients, recipe, and tried....

Aloo/potatoes - 3 large ones, pressure cooked and kept aside
Grated tomatoes - 3
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Dhania powder - 1 tsp
Slit green chilli - 1
Garam masala powder - 3/4 tsp
salt to taste

To season
Ghee - 3-4 tsps
Hing powder - 1/4 tsp
Grated ginger - 1 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp

To garnish
Chopped Cilantro/coriander leaves

Recipe Cuisine: Kanpuri; Category: Lunch/dinner
Prep time: 15 mts; Cooking time: 20-25 mts

Serves 2-3

Pressure cooked potatoes left to cool down

Tomatoes grated

Pan heated/or at this stage itself, you can heat a pressure pan and do  too....  .Heat ghee, season hing powder, jeera and grated ginger

Then add the grated tomatoes

Flames on the lowest, can be covered with a lid, and patiently simmer the tomatoes till ghee oozes out, and tomatoes also shrink down in volume

Tomatoes shrunk, ghee oozes out, 

Now add, chilli, turmeric and dhania powders, slit green chilli and , mix well

Now add the peeled and broken potatoes(not mashed) and salt to taste

Pour enough water to immerse the potatoes and  pressure cook for 2 whistles.

The subzi done...flavor wafting thru the whole house!!!!

Now, add garam masala powder and chopped coriander leaves. Just before serving, add a dash of ghee, and serve with rotis, parathas or phulkas...
