Broccoli and Potato Fry

           Usually it is just the potato fry or the stir-fried broccoli, thought of bringing them together in this fry with a little garlic and black pepper, the end result was really good. People who find it hard to swallow broccoli alone can try this combo..

Need To Have:
  • Broccoli chopped - 2 cups
  • Red potato - 3 medium sized
  • Garlic - 3 pods 
  • Turmeric powder - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chilli powder - 3/4 teaspoon
  • Pepper powder - 1/4 teaspoon
  • Curry leaves - a few
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon
  • Jeera seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

          Chop the potatoes with the skin. Heat oil add mustard and jeera seeds, add the potatoes, saute for a few mins, add the salt, turmeric and chilli powder, mix . Add the chopped garlic, mix and cook without covering. Cook the broccoli separately either in the microwave or stove-top. Once the potato is cooked add the broccoli and pepper powder, mix well cook for 5 more mins. Add curry leaves, mix and serve. Goes with rice, roti and dal.

Don't cover when the potao is cooking, it'll become mushy.
When I updated the pictures, I had used the regular potatoes, not the red ones.
