A simple masala with potatoes and peas that can be done within few minutes. It goes well with any rice varieties as a side dish and equally tastes good with chapathis/dosas.

Potato - 2 medium
Green peas - 1/4 cup
Onion - 1 small chopped fine
Tomato - 1 medium chopped fine
Garlic - 3 pods crushed
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Garam masala powder - 1/2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - few
Urad dhal - few
Curry leaves - few
Chopped cilantro for garnishing
Salt as needed
Oil - 1 tbsp

Peel and cut the potatoes into medium size cubes and immerse in water.

Heat oil in a kadai/pan and add mustard seeds, urad dhal and curry leaves....when they start to splutter up, add onions and crushed garlic. Fry till onions are light brown and then add chopped tomato. Mash and cook till they are pulpy and water leaves out. Next add chopped potato and peas....mix well and add water just enough for immersing..add salt and turmeric powder....cover with a lid/plate and cook till they are soft...stirring in between now and then. Finally add the powders and mix well. At this time water would have almost gone. You can add more water , if you want the curry to be little liquidy Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves. Can also add few drops of lime juice which is optional.
