potato and dill bhaji

Staying in gulf, the only source of entertainment is either get-togethers or shopping malls which my daughter has started hating now. So we try to meet up every week over 1 dish party or simply get together and get food from out. It was then, my north Indian friend had made this dish, First of all it goes well with chapathi as well as rice and best part is that this dish is really easy to make. She was all in praises and i make it quite often when i am damn lazy!!!

Potato - 2 medium size
dill leaves - 1 bunch (sabsige soppu)
methi seeds - 1/2 tsp
chilli powder - 1 tsp
oil - 2 tsp
salt to taste

Wash and peel potatoes. Cut into thin square pieces. keep the pieces in water to avoid discolouring.
Heat oil in a non stick pan. Add methi seeds and fry till light brown now add potato pieces and give a stir. cover with a lid and cook on low flame stirring in between till the potatoes are cooked and then let it brown if u like the crisp taste of the potatoes. This will take around 10 minutes.
Meanwhile wash dill leaves in water 3 times or till the water comes clear, chop finely and keep aside.
To the cooked potatoes add chilli powder, salt. Mix well. now add dill leaves mix well and cover with a lid. and another 5 min the dish is ready to eat.
