Tondli Batata

A simple stir fry with panch phoran and sesame seeds that's what it is. So it is che phoran now instead of panch as it is 6 seasonings that have gone into it. Yet it finds place here on the blog to give people like cuz Hrushi the courage to make simple bhaajis that are tasty. This bhaaji needs to look good too so slice the ivy gourd lenghtwise and potatoes also should be sliced like chips.


1/4 kg ivy gourd
4 medium potatoes
1 teaspoon panch phoran (mustard, cumin, nigella, fenugreek, fennel seeds mix)
1 teaspoon white sesame seeds
2 teaspoon oil
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
salt to taste

Heat oil. Splutter the panch phoran on high heat. Inhale the divine aroma for a min. Add the 6th phoran of white sesame seeds. Toast them a bit. Then add the Ivy gourd and sliced potatoes. Sprinkle turmeric and red chili powder over it. Add the salt.

Stir and mix. Cook covered until done.
