Marinated Potato Capsicum Curry

This weekend I had prepared Marinated Potato Capsicum curry. This recipe is a culmination of two amazing dishes paneer tikka and veg stir fry.
Why on earth I did that?!! I don't have answer to that myself. But let me ensure the result was gr8.

Ingredients :

2 medium sized potatoes boiled and cubed
1 large capsicum chopped into big square chunks
1 onion chopped into big square chunks
1 tomato chopped into big square chunks
oil for tempering
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 sprig curry leaves
pinch asafoetida

Marinating Sauce :
3 tbs yogurt/curd whisked
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala
1 tsp fennel seed/saunf powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
salt to taste

For Garnish :
2 tbs freshly chopped cilantro/coriander leaves
Lemon wedges

Preparation Method:

Whisk the marinade into a big bowl, big enough to contain all the veggies. Now add all the diced veggies and mix well into the marinade sauce. Let is marinate for at least 1 hour.

After an hour of marination our veggies are ready to be stir fried. So in a big non stick pan add oil and let it come to a smoke, add cumin seeds and curry leaves when it starts to crackle add the marinated mix of veggies and saute it for 2-3 mins or till the oil starts to separate. Adjust salt and spiciness.

Garnish it with fresh chopped cilantro and lemon wedges.
This dish goes nice with jeera rice or any kinda biryani. Can also be enjoyed with roti or naan.

This lip smacking dish is easy to prepare and hearty at taste.
