  1. Wash the loti and cut into pieces as long as French fries. Peel the skin off as well. It is important to peel the skin properly or else the loti will cause itching in the throat.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and fry the shutki pieces, shrimps and onions. Add the turmeric and red chilli powder along with the sliced garlic and salt.
  3. Pour in 1.5 cups of water and cook until the water dries up and the oil starts to simmer and float on top.
  4. Add the loti and sliced potatoes with 1/2 cup of water. Lower the heat, put the lid on and allow the loti to cook for 10 minutes until the water dries up, and the oil starts to float on top.
