I somehow have alwayss been successful in keeping yam away from my diet. But this dish with potato was worth trying and it tasted good too. I love cooking it flavorful and spicy and so added pepper and coriander powder as well, and fortunately, ift didn't spoil the whole deal. Thanks for sharing the recipe Sanghi!

Here is another one from me; I wnder if you can broadcast it! I first used two tablespoonfuls of olive oil. When oil became slightly warm, I made a nixture of the following: one teaspoon of table salt, one t-spoon of jeera, one t-spoon of dhana powder, one t-spoon of sambar poder, one t-spoon of turmeric, two pinches of hing, I collected them all in a small bowl and mixed with a little water to avoid being burnt and poured it into the sauce pan at a low flame. In sed alarge baingan and cut it into large pieces. I also used three small potatoes, and a large carrot and cut these into small pieces along with red onions sliced, I put them all in the waiting sauce pan and stirred the whole thing with a little water. I covered the pan for 5 minutes and alter added two more tablespoonfuls of olive ouil and allowed it cook for about 6 minutes over a medium flame all the while allowing to simmer. Turned off the flame and after 10 minutes ate it with parotha, I wondeer if I can ask you to try this for the customers. Thanks
