  • Potato- 4, medium (boiled)

  • Cumin/jeera powder- 1 tsp.

  2.  Dry roast the makhana in a pan over low heat until they are crisp.
  3.  When makhanas are toasted, transfer them to a bowl and set aside.
  4.  In the same pan, heat the ghee.
  5.  Add the chopped green chilli and saute for a few seconds.
  6.  Add the chopped potatoes in the ghee and stir.
  7.  Now add the cumin powder, dry anardana powder and salt.
  8.  Mix the potatoes really well.
  9.  Cook the potatoes on a medium to low flame until they are cooked to your liking. I like them when they are golden and start forming a crusty layer on them.
