Aloo sabzi (Potato stir fry with poppy and fennel seeds)

There is no such thing as a perfect recipe for potato stir fries or curries. You just cook them however you want, add anything you like and they never fail to impress you. Potatoes have their own unique charm, don't they? I make them in my house, whenever I am feeling lazy or running out of time. It is an effortless vegetable. Apart from that, any experiment with them never fails. Just like that, a few years back I experimented with them by adding fennel seeds and poppy seeds and it worked. The flavour and aroma of these 2 ingredients works magic in this stir fry. It is a very simple and a quick recipe and it tastes great with chapatis or puris.
