This tasty, healthy and less spicy stir fry is an excellent option for kids lunchbox menu as it contains kids favourite potato along with a healthy ivy gourd and egg. The addition of peanuts gives a crunchy taste to the stir fry and also gives a delicious taste when eaten with veggies. I have used only green chillies for the spicy taste which can also be replaced with red chilli powder or extra chillies to adjust according to the taste bud. This stir fry goes well with any varieties of rice and personally, I served with lemon rice.
