Add jeera, elaichi, bay leaf, mustard seeds, cinnamon stick, and cloves, and saute for a minute or two. Add the onions and saute until they become golden brown in colour.
Now, add the tomatoes along with the haldi and red chilli powder and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Mix in the potatoes, carrots, and boiled gatte. Combine everything together.
