2. Green chillies - 4
3. Tomatoes - 2 small
4. Onion - 2 medium
5. Ginger - 1" piece
6. Garlic - 6 flakes
7. Coriander leaves - A handful
8. Potato - 1 peeled and cubed
8. Garam masala powder - 1/2 Tsp
9. Fresh cream - 1 Tbsp
10. Refined Oil or Ghee - 2 Tsp

Grind ingredients 2 to 7 to a smooth paste.
Pressure cook soaked matki for 5 mins.
In a thick bottomed vessel, heat oil. Fry the green masala paste till oil leaves the sides.
Add the potato and fry till slightly cooked.
Add cooked matki with water and salt to taste.
