Green Tomato and Potato Fry

Green Tomato and Potato Fry, originally uploaded by veetraag.

I usually love making this recipe when it is raining outside. There is something very comforting about eating fried, oily, spicy food while watching the rain as it comes down in torrents. This is the only season when I don't mind eating oily food without feeling guilty afterwards. Hope this recipe gives you as much warmth as it has given me during all those wet, gloomy, rainy days.

Ingredients :

Potatoes : 4 large, Green (unripe) Tomatoes : 4 no;

Mustard Seeds : 1 tsp; Asafoetida (Hing) : 1/4 tsp;

Turmeric powder (Haldi) : 1/2 tsp; Red Chilli Powder : 2 Tb;

Oil : 4-6Tb; Salt & Sugar To Taste.

Method :

Peel and dice potatoes. Dice the green tomatoes. heat oil and add the mustard seeds and asafoetida. When the seeds crackle, add the potatoes and saute till brown on all sides. Now add salt, sugar, turmeric and red chilli powder. now add the tomatoes and saute for 30 seconds. Now cover and cook for 5 - 10 minutes or till the potatoes are almost cooked. Now saute, uncovered, till there is no trace of water in the pan. Serve hot with dal-rice or parathas.
