Yu Choy and Potato Stir fry



Yu Choy leaves (chopped) -1 bunch (Cut the stalks and set them aside for another recipe)
Potato - medium size 1,Sliced
Oil – 1 tbsp
Mustard seeds – ¼ tsp
Urad dal - 1/2 tsp
Split Bengal gram - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds-1/2tsp
Garlic minced-1 tbsp
Red chili powder-1/2 tsp *
Salt *


Heat the oil in a medium pan. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seed, let the mustard seeds splutter and add Urad dal, split Bengal gram and the minced garlic. Add the sliced potatoes, salt, chili powder after Urad dal and Bengal gram turns golden brown. Cover the pan and let it cook for 5 min in medium heat, by stirring the potatoes a couple of times in between.

In the meantime heat 1 tsp of oil in another medium pan then add chopped Yu Choy leaves, salt and cook till it becomes tender without adding water to it. Cook it in medium heat else the water in the greens will dry out soon. When it becomes soft (cooked enough) remove from the stove top and squeeze the water and add (you can leave the water but the curry will be a little mushy) it to the potatoes after checking the potatoes are cooked if not let the potatoes cook for couple of minutes, mix them well and let it be on stove for few more minutes.
