Puri bhaji/Poori bhaji Aloo bhaji /Batata Bhaji/Potatoes stir fry/Potato Sabzi

Puri bhaji is a very popular breakfast in Maharashtra. Puri bhaji with a dollop of shrikhand was always my favourite in childhood .I still enjoy puri bhaji with shrikhand when I'm bored of eating non veg which is quite rare though.
I have already posted poori/puri recipe  yesterday.Making this bhaji is very simple there are different styles in which this can be prepared some like it dry some like it in curry style.You can either boil the potatoes first and then prepare it or the way I have prepared it.The leftover bhaji can be stuffed in bread and toasted or can be used as stuffing to dosas.
500 gms potatoes
1 onion
3-4 green chillies /as needed
1/2 tsp urad dal
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp mustard seeds
 1/2 tsp haldi /turmeric powder
10-12 of curry leaves/kadipatta
1/2 cup chopped coriander leaves
2 tbsp oil/as needed
salt to taste.
Clean the potatoes and cut in cubes leave it in water .

Chop onions and green chillies.

In a vessel heat oil then put the curry leaves & mustard,cumin seeds and urad dal.

Once they sputter add chopped chillies then add the onions and  fry till they turn transulcent.

Now add the potatoes ,haldi and mix well add the salt and cover the lid.

Let it cook over medium flame add very little water .

Once the potatoes are cooked the bhaji is ready.

Serve hot with Pooris/puri.
