After storing away the Boris / Bodi / Badis / vadi that I made, I had forgotten all about them in the fast flying days. Until hubby wanted aloo borir tarkari one day. Waited till the weekend ... I usually run out of all vegetables by weekends .... and made it. So here is another simple dish from my kitchen ... the Aloo Borir / Aloo Bodir tarkari.
But before that let me introduce our new guest. After a batch of guests left around a couple of months back, I had the guestroom and its bath cleaned out and left the window in the bath open to air it. And forgot all about it.
It seems a certain Mr. & Mrs. Pigeon were on the lookout for a cozy place to settle down and zeroed in on my bath ... maybe they loved the empty rack that came as amenity.
And after a while, along came little Baby Pigeon. So right now the members of this happy family are my house guests.
I just pray I do not have any long term guests until Baby learns to fly and leaves home. :-)
Coming back to my simple dish, this does not take much time. If you want more gravy, just add enough water and adjust the seasonings.
BTW I have already posted a recipe with boris / bodi / badis and Lauki / Bottle gourd here.
Need : Aloo / potatoes cut into cubes, bori / badi, sliced onion, chopped tomatoes, jeera/ cumin, haldi / turmeric powder, red chilli powder, salt and sugar to taste, a little cooking oil, a little water.

Now add the potatoes and fry well.
