- Take out excess oil from the karaahi so that only 2 tbsp remains. Reheat the oil, and put Jeera, Tejpatta, dried red chili and mustard seeds.
- When jeera and mustard seeds begin to splutter, add tomato, ginger- garlic paste, mustard paste and all the powdered masalas and saute for 5 mins. Add the fried potatoes, salt and saute again for 3 mins.
