Potato Bhaaji (Pivli batatyachi bhaji)

Was busy for the last 3 days so couldn't upload any recipe.. This is a very famous Marathi dish. Most of our maharashtrian homes have a set menu for any holy function or festival and this bhaaji tops the list. I remember till I went to the 5th std my mother used to prepare this bhaaji along with puris for picnic it was a patent menu. Picnic means puri bhaaji..I love it very quick, easy and yummy recipe.I am sure most of my marathi friends will agree with me..

Ingredients:
Potatoes - 500 gm boiled and chopped
onion - 2 finely chopped
green chilli - 2 to 3 slit
curry leaves - 1 spring
turmeric - 1 tsp
dhaniya jeera powder - 2 tsp
mustard - 1/4 tsp
jeera - 1/4 tsp
sugar - pinch
asafoetida - pinch
fresh coriander - handful finely chopped
oil
salt

Method:
heat oil in a kadhai add mustard, jeera and hing along with green chillis. Now add onions after 1min add turmeric and salt cook until onions turn soft and pink. Add the dhaniya jeera pwd mix and add potatoes add sugar cover and cook for another 5 minutes add chopped coriander and check for salt if required add some. Cook for 2 o 3 minutes more and switch off the flame.
Serve hot with Puris or rotis.

  17. This brings back such lovely memories... :-). Me and my frds used to share our tiffins in school (and later also during college), and this bhaji was so regular..as in, it had to be there in somebody or the other's tiffin almost everyday. I guess that's how popular this simple dish is...and what's more.. its really tasty and you don't really tire of it.

    Most of my frds were marathi, and my tiffin used to have dosas or variations of dosas most of the time. so, we ended up discovering (surprisingly) that this bhaji with dosas and chutney is not a bad combination..at all :-)!
