  • We have used mustard oil in this recipe, but you can use any other cooking oil for making this sabzi.
  • Cook sabzi on low flame for better flavor. If you cook sabzi on high flame then more water will be added into it. Time for cooking sabzi is same whether on low or high flame.
  • 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. Cooking and adding the masala separately gives nice color and flavor to the sabzi.
