Turmeric Spiced kale and Swiss Chard Potato Stir Fry

This greens and potato stir fry is one of my all time favorite Indian dishes. I love the simple flavors of this dish that shouts comfort food for me. It’s an easy Indian stir fry curry spiced with just turmeric and cumin seeds.

The flavors come from the veggies which are onions, greens such as Swiss chard and kale and golden yukon potatoes. Really that’s all it takes to make a delicious veggie stir fry that can be had as a stuffing inside a wrap, had along with a steaming bowl of daal, and rice , or with naan and chapti. Delicious, wholesome, and healthy, i hope you will give it a try!



6 yukon gold potatoes cut into 2 inch pieces
1 bunch swissh chard ribs removed and finely cut
1 bunch kale ribs removed and finely cut
1 medium white or yellow onion finely cut
1 tsp cumin seeds
1 tsp turmeric
1 green chili finely diced (optional)
Chili powder (as much as you want)
juice of 1 small lemon
