Simple Aloo and Tomato subji

I usually prefer something tangy with my puri. Not that i dont like chana masala and all that, but, if i prepare something as heavy as chana masala for breakfast, lunch goes for a toss and we end up eating very less for lunch. Hence, i try to keep it simple :-)

Ingredients :

Potato - 1/4 Kg
Tomato - 3 large ones (i use the tangy ones)
Green chillies - 3 nos.
Onion - 1 large one
Coriander leaves - a small bunch
Curry leaves - a few
Ginger garlic paste - 1 spoon
Turmeric - 2 pinches
Coriander pwdr - 1 spoon
Cummin powder - 1 spoon
Salt - to taste

For tampering:

Cummin seeds - 1/2 spoon
Mustarf - 1/2 spoon
Oil - 1 Spoon
Method :

Heat the pressure cooker. Add the oil and once it is hot, add cummin, mustard and the curry leaves. Let the mustard splutter. Once done, add the onions and fry till golden brown. At this stage add the turmeric, cummin and coriander powder. Once these start giving out a nice aroma, add the ginger garlic paste. Fry for a few seconds. Add the tomatoes and a little bit of salt. The reason for the salt is that, it would let the tomatoes get mushy faster. Once the tomatoes start giving out the juices, add the potatoes. Add some water (make sure you add only as much as required) and adjust salt to suit your taste. Pressure cook this for 3 whistles. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Roti/Puri/Rice.

This would get done in a jiffy. You could use it as a sandwich filling also, provided you have not added too much water. Even if you had, just refrigerate and voila ! you have a sandwich filling ready.
