  • 7-8 curry leaves
  • 2 green chillies chopped fine
  • 1 large onion chopped fine
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  • Heat the oil in a pan on a medium flame. Add the mustard seeds, green chillies and curry leaves and fry till spluttering stops.
  • Add the onions and fry till soft.
  • Add the potatoes, tumeric powder and salt to taste and mix well.
