We all love Potatoes and even Kids love potatoes, because potato is very versatile and makes the taste double of any sabji; such as aloo matar, aloo paneer, aloo Gobi etc.

Preparing Capsicum and Potatoes

I always soak my all vegetables in the water. You know why? Soaking vegetables in the water, helps to reduce the effect of chemical sprays.

So soak your two Bell Peppers, two potatoes, one tomato and green chilly in the water.

Then wash them in the running water thoroughly using a Steel Collard. Drain all the water after rinsing them well.
