Ghosale anik Kook /Batata Upkari

This is our 600th post ! Thanks to all your support & encouragement & the continuous & dedicated  efforts of our authors here !This is a simple & tasty upkari which I recently recollected ! This used to be made by my mother which would be eagerly eaten up by we family members !  So lets see the recipe !

Ingredients :-

  1. Ghosale – 1 cup – cleaned & sliced into long thin pieces 
  2. Kook / Batata ( Potato) – 1 cup – peeled & cubed 
  3. Chilli powder – 1 tsp or more as per spice level 
  4. Salt to taste 
  5. Oil & 1 tsp mustard seeds for seasoning 

Method :-

  1. Heat oil in a kadai & splutter the mustard seeds .Switch off flame .
  2. Add the chilli powder in the hot oil . Take care not to burn it .
  3. Add the potato pieces , salt and a little water  Cover and cook till half done . 
  4. Add the ghosale pieces and cook again on slow flame ‘You may not need to add more water as it will leave its own juice .
  5. Cook till done .
Serve as a side dish with rice .
Note :-
My mother used to fry chillies with a little oil , then powder & store in a dry bottle as Bhajjillo Miriya Pittto ( roasted chilli powder ), So she would add it simply to the veggies and didnt have to roast in oil as mentioned here ! .
This dish tastes best when it is a little spicy !
