Alu borhir tarkari

One small potato

4/5 borhi
(More if they are small)
One small red onion – finely chopped
One small tomato -- finely chopped

Turmeric powder -- half a tea-spoon
Ginger powder – a pinch
Cumin seeds
Cumin powder -- half a tea-spoon
A small red chilly
Sugar – a pinch (optional)

Saute borhi and keep at one side.

Heat oil in a pan.
Add a pinch of cumin seeds to the oil.
Tear a small red chilly into pieces and add that, too.
Add some chopped onion.
Add potato, as the onion turns golden.
Add turmeris poder, ginger powder, cumin powder

Stir everything to mix them well and let the potato get fried a little.
Add salt. Stir a little. Cover with a lid. Let it cook for a few minutes.

Add chopped tomato. Stir and mix it very well.

Add water.
Add borhi.

Bring it to boil.
See if the potato is totally cooked and softened. Boil until the potato is completely done.
(If you add sugar, add it only after the potato is cooked, into the boiling gravy. Let it get mixed well. Done. By the way, I did not add sugar.)

Serve with steamed rice.
