  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 tsp mustard seeds
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 2 green chilies finely chopped
  • 1 spring curry leaves / curry pata
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 3 small tomatoes chopped
  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder
  • 2 1/2 tsp coriander powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 2 medium size white potatoes microwaved, peeled, cubed
  • 8 slice 100% whole wheat bread 1 inch cubes
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala


  • Start by chopping the green chilies and onions. Set aside the curry leaves.</br></br>
  • Heat a pot on medium heat, add oil, once hot, add the mustard seeds.</br></br>
  • Once they splutter after a few seconds, add the turmeric powder. Stir.</br></br>
  • Add the green chilies and curry leaves. Stir and allow this to cook for about 10 seconds.</br></br>
  • Add the onions and season with salt. Stir. Let the onions cook for about 5 minutes or until they are slightly golden.</br></br>
  • Chop the tomatoes.</br></br>
  • Add the tomatoes to the onions.</br></br>
  • Season with red chili powder, coriander powder, and salt. Stir.</br></br>
  • Cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low-medium heat (dial 4). Let the tomatoes cook down for about 10 minutes until you have a paste-like consistency.</br></br>
  • In the meantime, microwave, peel, and cube the potatoes.</br></br>
  • Also, cube the 8 slices of bread.</br></br>
  • Check on the onion-tomato mixture, this is what you should have… masala mixture.</br></br>
  • Add water.</br></br></br>
  • Add the potatoes. Stir and let the potatoes cook for about 3 minutes.</br></br>
  • This is what you should have.</br></br>
  • Add the bread.</br></br>
  • Toss well. Takes a bit of effort.</br></br>
  • Add the garam masala and season with salt, if need be.</br></br>
  • I made this super quick Cilantro Chutney to go with it, minus the coconut.</br></br>
  • Serve immediately. Top with chutney, and squirt some lemon if you’d like. Heaven!</br></br>
