Salt

To Grind:
1/4cup Grated coconut
1tbsp Sesame seeds
1tsp Cumin seeds
3nos Green chillies

Dry roast sesame seeds and grind everything from the list 'to grind' as bit coarse paste with enough water and keep aside..Heat coconut oil and let splutters the mustard seeds, add the diced potatoes saute with turmeric powder and salt for few minutes, add the diced bellpeppers and saute again for few seconds, add the grounded paste to the veggies and toss gently until the grounded paste get well mixed,springle some water and close with the lid...
