This is North Indian's Dry sabzi. My North Indian friend used to bring this for lunch along with roti/puri. I wonder this is more or less like our South India Potato Podimas but something makes it more special and different from our regular Potato podimas. Then one fine day we went to her home for lunch, that time her mom served us lunch with this Bhatate bhaaji, puri, peas curry, rice and a sweet. I asked her for the recipe and it was same like the Potato Podimas except the addition of mint and lemon. Yes, these two simple ingredients makes it more tasty and flavorful. If you haven;t tried it give it a try.
