Makhana Aur Alu Ki ChatPata Milan

I had bought a packet of Makhanas to make sweet goodies for Navratras however my recipe shifted from meetha to chutputta after I had more than my fill of meetha . This is what I came up with and I love it and hope you do too .
2 Measuring Cups Makhanas - They are bulky so you will get maybe 30-40 pieces which you cut / break onto smaller sizes.
2 Medium Sized Potatoes Boiled & Cubed.
Ghee .
1/2 Cup Roasted Peanuts - Cool and crush once.
Curry Leaves.
Lots of Chopped Green Dhania
Whole Red Chilies.
Coarsely Pounded Spice  :
1 Teaspoon Jeera.
1 Teaspoon Whole Dhania / Coriander Seeds.
1 Teaspoon Sauf / Fennel Seeds.
1 Teaspoon Black Peppercorn.
Salt To Taste.

Heat 1 tablespoon ghee add whole chilies and curry leaves , then add makhanas and lightly stir fry  till aromatic and they change color 3-5 minutes .They will also harden .Set aside.
Heat 1 Tablespoon Ghee , add all the spice , saute 30 seconds till aromatic , add potatoes and cook 5-6 minutes , now add the makhanas  and half the peanuts back and add salt , cook another 2-3 minutes to mix flavors .Take off heat , mix in chopped dhania  leaves, this will infuse flavors with the heat ,serve the dish warm or cold - spreading the balance peanuts as you serve.Delicious !
