Add 2 tsp oil to pan. Add the mustard-fenugreek-fennel-coriander seeds, curry leaves, turmeric and green chilli. When the seeds start crackling, add the onion and potato pieces with a little bit of salt. Cover the pan and cook till they are almost done.

Add the washed chuda and stir gently to mix it well with the other ingredients. Put in some more salt. Takes 2-3 mins to be done. Then remove from fire, add the fried peanuts, grated coconut, coriander leaves and squeeze the lemon over it. Mix gently and serve with tomato sauce/ketchupp.
