Indian Potatoes and Peas

Not a very imaginative name, I know, but this is an easy and very tasty dish.


INGREDIENTS
- 2 tbsp oil
- 2 onions, chopped
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander (i.e. cilantro)
- 1" piece of ginger, minced
- 2 tsp tumeric
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1 1/2 tsp garam masala
- 1 tsp salt
- 3 tomatoes, chopped
- 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into large cubes
- 1 - 1 1/2 cups water
- 2 cups frozen peas

METHOD
1. Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add onions, coriander, and ginger and fry for 5 mins. Add spices and salt and mix well. Add tomatoes and potatoes into the pan and cook for 5 mins. Add some water into the pan if mixture gets too dry.
2. Add 1 cup of water and bring to bubbling. Lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 15 mins, until potatoes are soft. Add peas to the pan and cook for 5 mins. Add more water if too dry.
