  • This sabzi will be medium spicy but if you wish to eat spicier then increase the quantity of red chilly powder.
  • Make separate masala for the sabzi to enhance the flavor. If you sauté the tomatoes and spices altogether earlier before adding potatoes then it would take time to cook potatoes and the sabzi wouldn’t have tasted better.
