Radish Pods (Moongre ki Subzi)

From A Mad Tea Party blog. Thank you!

1/2 pound (250 g) fresh radish pods
1-2 potatoes
1 tablespoon grated ginger
5 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tomatoes, chopped
1-2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
pinch of hing
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 1/2 teaspoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon red (cayenne) chilli powder
coriander leaves (cilantro) for garnish

Rinse the radish pods. Top and tail them. Snap into 1-1 1/2″ lengths. Peel and cube the potatoes.

Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan. Add the cumin seeds followed by hing, then garlic and ginger. Once the garlic is fragrant add the chopped tomatoes. Stir and cook till the tomatoes turn to mush and the oil begins to surface. Add a pinch of salt if the mush starts to stick to the bottom of the pan. Add turmeric, coriander powder, and red chilli powder, in that order. Give a stir and let fry for a few seconds till the spices are cooked, taking care to not let the chillies burn. Add the prepared vegetables. Sprinkle salt and mix. Cover and cook till potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes.
