2) Now you need to start making the main dish. Heat some ghee in a cooker and add cumin seeds, crushed chilli, ginger, and asafoetida one by one. Put the spices as well, including degi red chilli powder, turmeric powder and coriander powder. Saute for a minute at least.
3) Gradually add tomatoes and saute the masala until you start getting the fragrance and the tomatoes turn a little softer.
4) Here comes the main ingredient of the recipe – potatoes. Add potatoes, along with some ghee and water. Stir the curry well and then cover the lid of the pressure cooker. You need to cook it under pressure for about 2-3 whistles and then switch off the flame. Let it cool down.
5) Once you remove the lid, mash some of the potatoes with a masher and then boil the curry for a minute.
6) Final step would include adding coriander leaves and lemon juice to the curry. Your potato sabji is ready!
7) Serve hot in a bowl and garnish it with coriander leaves and lemon wedges on top.
