Mustard Greens (Sawi) & Potato Stir Fried

Side dishes are made almost every day. Obviously because rice is our daily staple. So sides are definitely a must. Compared to the easy preasy sides I have been making, this one is a little extravagant - leafy veg and potatoes with dhal and spices, not only tasty but with a rainbow of colors.

1 bunch (about 200g) mustard greens (sawi)  - sliced thinly
2 potatoes (about 210g) - sliced into thin stripes with the skin on, deep fry and kept aside
1/4 cup dhal - boiled till tender
1 (about 100g) onion - sliced thinly
2 red chillies - remove seeds and sliced thinly
1/2 inch ginger - sliced into thin stripes
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tbsp lime juice
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, saute onion, chillies, ginger, cumin seeds and mustard seeds.
Add dhal and veg.
Stir and cook to soften the veg. 
Add potatoes, lime juice and salt to taste.
Stir and dish out.
