    2       md           Tomatoes, chopped
    5       md           Potatoes, cubed

    1       tb           Basil
    2       ea           Whole dried red chilies
    4       ea           Sprigs fresh coriander
      1/2   ts           Turmeric
      1/8   ts           Asafetida

    6       tb           Ghee
    2 2/3   c            Water
 
   Place all the ingredients into a large heavy bottomed pot in the order in
   which they are listed.  Bring to a boil over a moderate heat, reduce heat &
   boil for 5 minutes.
   
   Reduce the heat further & gently boil, partially covered, for 20 to 25
   minutes.  Check that the water is not evaporating too quickly.  You may
   have to add more water.
   
   To finish cooking, raise the heat to fairly high & fry quickly, without
   stirring, to allow the crust to form & just begin to char.  Remove from the
   heat & let stand, covered for 5 minutes.  Stir in the crust & serve,
   remembering to remove the red chilies, you may not want to bite into them.
