Potato and Broccoli Stir-Fry

Do you love Potato? Who doesn't! Majority of the kids favorite is Potato. My son Abhi is potato lover in our home. I always make something with potato twice a week for him. Usually I sneak in some greens in potato fry, and today's green is Broccoli, which is not his favorite at all. Shhhhh! He didn't notice a thing about broccoli and finished all the potato fry. I told him at the end though and he gave thumbs up for this stir-fry, Win-Win, wink! ;-) Here is the recipe for you, Njoy!

Russet Potato - 2 medium
Broccoli - 10 Florets
Onion- 1/2 small
Green Chili - 2
Curry Leaves - 5
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Red Chili - 2
Urad Dal - 1 Tbsp
Chana Dal - 1 Tbsp
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Mustard Seeds - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp

Preparatory Steps:
  1. Heat non-stick pan and add oil to it. Once the oil is hot add red chili followed by chana dal and urad dal. As the lentils brown, add cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Once mustard splutter, add curry leaves, green chili and onions. Add turmeric powder and saute well. 
  2. Now add chopped potato pieces to tempering in the pan and mix well; close the lid and cook on low heat for 10 min. 
  3. After 10 min, potatoes should be tender and become soft by now. Add salt and chopped /grated broccoli and mix well with potatoes. Let it cook for 5 more minutes on low heat. 
  4. After 5 min, taste and adjust accordingly. If you need more spice you can add some red chili powder and coriander powder. 
  5. Now increase the heat to medium to high heat and stir-fry so that everything gets mixed and fried well. 
  6. Switch off the stove now and transfer immediately into serving bowl. 

Serve hot with hot white rice and enjoy the dinner!

Will be back with another kid's favorite,
Take care until then!
