Cuisine: Indian

Total time: 
Serves: 4 Servings
  • Potatoes – 4, medium
  • Scallion (Peyajkoli) – 200 gms
  • Mustard oil – 2 tbsp
  • Onion seeds (kalonji) – ¼ tsp
  • Dry whole red chilli – 2
  • Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
  • Poppy seeds – 2 tsp
  • Salt to taste
  1. Peel and cut the potatoes into small cubes about 1 cm long.
  2. Chop the peyajkoli/scallions into 1 inch long strips.
  3. Heat oil in a skillet and temper it with onion seeds and whole dry red chillies. Let the seeds crackle.
  4. Now add the turmeric powder and the cubed potatoes. Saute them till they are three-fourth done.
  5. Then add the chopped peyajkoli/scallions and stir well.
  6. Saute everything till the potatoes are cooked through and the scallions are soft enough. I keep the scallions a bit crunchy since I like it that way.
  7. Now sprinkle the poppy seeds and give a final stir.
  8. Remove from heat and serve hot with chapati. Enjoy!
