Channa & Aaloo stir-fry

I had some left over cooked channa/chick peas sitting in the fridge. Made this quick stir-fry with potatoes, and it tasted very good with rice/roti.

Ingredients

Cooked channa-1/2cup
Potato-1
Onion-1
Green Chilly-1
Chilli powder-11/2teaspoon
Coconut milk powder-2teaspoons
Coriander-cumin powder-1teaspoon
Mustard seeds-1/2teaspoon
Cumin seeds-1/2teaspoon
Cilantro-to garnish
Oil
Salt

Method
Chop the onions,green chilly into fine pieces.
Heat oil in a kadai, make the tempering with mustard andcumin seeds/jeera.
Add the onion-g.chilly, fry till the onions are transparent, then add in the potato, salt and the spice powders.
Sprinkle little water, cover it and cook till the potatoes are soft.
Now add the cooked channa(mine has salt in it, so adjust the salt accordingly), and cook for few more minutes.
Finally add the coconut milk powder, and cook till the curry becomes dry.
Garnish with cilantro and enjoy it with plain rice/roti or a side dish for Sambar rice/Rasam Rice/Curd rice.
