Ingredients: Boiled & peeled potato ( 1 no., large ), yogurt ( 4-5 tbs ), ginger ( 1
inch long ), cumin ( 1/2 tsp ), green chilli ( 2 nos ), salt, oil ( 3 tsp ).

Cooking: Cut the potato into medium sized cubes. Heat 1 tsp oil in a wok. Add the
potatoes and stir fry for 3-4 mins. Remove and keep aside.

Add the remaining oil into the wok. Add the cumin seeds and the crushed ginger & green chillis. Fry for 1 minute. Add 1/4 cup water to cool down the wok temperature.

Beat the yogurt with 1/2 tsp corn flour and 2-3 tsp water. Add to the wok along with
salt. Bring to a boil while stirring continuously. Add the stir fried potatoes.

Boil for 7-8 mins or till most of the water evaporates and the yogurt forms a thick
layer around the potatoes.
