Subzis For Siri: Sprouted Peas - Potato Subzi

My sister recently asked me whether I could post some recipes for subzis which go well with rotis. She was bored with the monotony of cooking the same subzis over and over. She thinks that I have a little more gyan than her in the cooking area since I own a blog and have been cooking longer than her. I think anyone who cooks on a daily basis for about a dozen years obviously becomes knowledgable to some extent ( sticking to cooking). :)) Like most of the women in India, she doesn't go looking for recipes over the web or in a book. Who does anyway when family members / friends are nearby? She therefore thought it would be easier for her to look for recipes here instead of googling. I am sure she would appreciate this easy and simple subzi recipe. I have paired nutritious sprouts with yummy potatoes. Sprouted green peas can be replaced by dry green peas. Soak them for a minimum of 4 hours and pressure cook them. You can see how to sprout here and here. Ingredients needed to serve 4 : 1 cup sprouted green peas 2 of each - potato, onion, tomato - chopped into cubes 2 tsp salt or according to taste 1 tsp chili powder 1 tsp coriander powder 1/4 tsp turmeric powder 1-2 tsp sugar (Optional) For tadka: 1 Tbsp oil, 1/2 tsp mustard seeds, cumin seeds The cooking part: Heat oil in a kadai / sauce pan and add mustard & cumin seeds to it. When they start to sizzle, add onion and fry till it turns translucent. Then add tomato and fry for a couple of minutes more. Then add potato cubes, sprouted peas, turmeric powder, salt and 2 & 1/2 cups of water and cook on high heat till potatoes are done. Add a little more water if needed. Now in goes coriander powder, chili powder and sugar. Simmer for another five minutes and turn off the stove. Serve hot with rotis.
