Vegetarian Thupka - Arunachal Pradesh

Today we are travelling to the North Eastern part of India – Arunachal Pradesh. Arunachal translates to “Aruna” is the one of the names of Sun god. Arunachal Pradesh translates to “Land of dawn lit mountains”. Some states were very hard to find recipes and Arunachal Pradesh is one among them.. I was hardly able to get any vegetarian recipes that are authentic to this state. Most of the recipes had dried fish in them.. This thupka was finally a breather.

Potato - 3 medium (chopped 1 inch size)
Tomato - 2 (chopped 1 inch size)
Onion - 2 (chopped 1 inch size)
Carrot - 1 (chopped 1 inch size)
Green Onions / Spring Onions - 1/2 cup (chopped 1 inch)
