Potatoes with Mushrooms and Capsicum

  • One packet of mushrooms, the usual packets available in the market.
  • Two medium size potatoes.
  • One large capsicum.

  • Wash mushrooms well.

  • Chop mushrooms into medium size pieces – as shown in the photograph.
  • Peel potatoes, dice and soak in water for a while. Remove from water and keep aside allowing the water to drain out.
  • Dice the capsicum.
  • Boil mushrooms and keep aside.
  • Heat one table spoon of oil in a kadhai or wok or choose a vessel of your choice.
  • Lower flame, add potatoes and lightly sauté the potatoes till they are slightly soft.
  • Add the boiled mushrooms along with the water in which it was boiled.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • You do not need to add water.
  • Cover and cook on low flame till done. Stir occasionally.
  • Before switching off the gas burner add ground black pepper and capsicums.
  • Stir and switch off the gas, do not immediately remove from the burner. The residual heat from the burner will partially soften the capsicum.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves.

This is obviously a healthy dish with low oil and no masalas or spices but definitely not low on taste.
