Aloo Shimla Mirch (Potatoes and Green Peppers)

One of our favorite lunches for our helper to cook, even though I taught her how we like it! 🙂

Aloo Shimla Mirch
6 potatoes
2-3 green peppers, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 t. cumin seeds
1 T. dania (coriander powder)
1/4 t. turmeric
3/4 t. salt
1 1/2 t. garam masala
1/4 t. pepper
Peel and cut the potatoes into bite size pieces.  Boil until soft to the bite, but still hold their shape.  Drain the water off and keep aside. 
Heat 1-2 T. oil in a wok.  Add cumin seed and saute till it starts popping and smelling great!  Add chopped garlic, onion, and green pepper.  Saute 5-7 minutes till pepper is softening.  Add potatoes and stir fry, with a bit more oil if necessary.  Then add dania, turmeric, salt and pepper, and about 1-2 T. water.  Stir to combine and coat.  Last, add garam masala and stir to coat, adding a bit of water as needed to get a good consistency.  Serve with chapatis.
