1 large red onion, sliced
2 green bell peppers, chopped same size as the potato
1 tsp cumin seed
2-3 green chillies, seeded and sliced
2-3 sprigs fresh curry leaves

·         In a deep saucepan or wok, heat the oil.  When hot add in the cumin seed, green chillies and curry leaves and sauté till the seeds stop popping.

·         Add in the onion and continue to sauté until translucent. 

·         Add in the capsicum and stir fry until half cooked. 

·         Add in the potatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, fennel powder and cumin powders.  Mix ingredients well and add a little salt.  Cover and cook until potatoes are done, about 8-10 minutes.
