Bhaji (Savory Potato Breakfast)

Source: Several Online Sources

Note: This version of Bhaji is 'Northern' style, where a fried version is 'Southern' style.

  • 3 big potatos - baked or boiled firm - cubed.

  • 6 green onions, chopped.

  • 1 small red onion, chopped.

  • 1 tsp mustard seeds.

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds.

  • 1 tsp rosemary needles (crushed).

  • 1 (4 oz) can of diced chillies (mild recommended).

  • 2 TBL shredded coconut.

  • 1 cup 'petite' diced tomatoes, with juice.

  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped.

  • 3 curry leaves (optional).

  • 1/4 tsp turmeric.

  • 1 TBL lemon juice.

  • 2 cups vegetable broth (or water).

  • Salt and Pepper to taste (or add hot chilli flakes).

  1. With a good oil (coconut is my favorite), saute the mustard seeds, cumin seeds, and rosemary until the mustard seeds all 'pop' (cover the pot!).

  2. Add the curry leaves, chillies, and onions; continue cooking until onions are very done.

  3. Add all of the other ingredients, bring to a boil, and cook until the potatos are done.

  4. Serve hot with a nan or roti.
