How to Make Batata chi Bhaji

  • Break potatoes by pressing them between your palms, or chop them with a knife. Keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, and add curry leaves after it.
  • Throw in the sliced green (or red) chillies and fry all of it for 10-20 seconds.
  • Add coconut and roast it on a low flame for 1 or 2 minutes till it turns slightly golden.
  • Take care not to burn it and keep stirring to avoid it sticking to the bottom.
  • Add spices and mix, then add the potato pieces and mix everything well gently.
  • Take care not to overdo it since boiled potatoes may get bit mushy.
  • Just cook it covered for a minute or two and then turn off the flame.
  • Spread the chopped coriander and serve hot with chapathi or thalipeeth and chutney on the side.
