We Maharashtrian love fasting but at the same time we don’t want to starve ourselves. So we invented many delicious dishes which we consider eating while keeping the fast 😀
Potatoes are very versatile and are considered as a good source of carbohydrates which generates the energy in our body. So I am presenting one dish which uses potatoes and peanuts, which I love eating during the fasting days.
Grated potatoes (With skin) 2
Cumin seeds 1 teaspoon
Roasted peanuts powder 2 tablespoon
Green chilies 2 (small)
Ghee or oil 2 tablespoons
Red chili powder 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste
Sugar 1 tablespoon
Coriander for garnishing
Heat the wok and put the ghee or oil.
After wok is heated add Cumin seeds and let it splutter.
Add chopped green chilies.
Add grated potatoes (with skin on).
Stir a while and then add roasted peanuts, salt, red chili powder and sugar.
Stir well and cover the wok with a lid for five minutes.
Check if potatoes are tender and moist.
Cover for two more minutes, the potatoes don’t take much time to cook.
Serve the dish in a serving plate and garnish it with coriander leaves.
