Indian Broad Beans with Potatoes (aloo with chukkudukaya)

Remember my other post where I was trying to increase the quantity of the okra I have at home by adding 1 potato and I called it Bhendi Burji with Aloo ? The other time when I was increasing the quantity of okra by adding them in tomato gravy and called it Tomato-Okra? Well, here is a recipe for increasing the quantity of potatoes by adding Indian Broad beans. This is called Chukkudukaya in Telugu. Not sure what it is called in Tamil or Hindi. This will go well when we have unexpected guests and some of who love potatoes :)
Ingredients:
Potatoes: 3 small, pealed and chopped
Beans: handful, chopped
Cumin/jeera: 1 tsp
Mustard seeds: 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves: 1 string
Salt
Turmeric powder: 1/4 tsp
Red chili Powder: 1 tsp
Oil: 2 tbsp

Method:
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. Once they splutter, add cumin followed by curry leaves. 
  • Now add the potatoes and beans. Stir fry until they get cooked.
  • After they are completely cooked, add turmeric powder, salt and red chili powder. 
  • Switch off the stove.
This will go very well with roti or even rice and sambar.
