After sauteing cumin seeds for while, add turmeric powder, coriander powder, ginger paste and green chilies. Stir well with a spoon. Now add chopped carrots, potatoes, red chilly powder and salt and saute the sabzi for 2 minutes. 

Add 2 tbsp water in the sabzi. Cover and cook for 7 to 8 minutes on low flame. Open the lid and stir the sabzi with help of a spoon. Check whether potatoes have turned soft or not. If potatoes are still under cooked, cover the sabzi again and cook for 4 to 5 more minutes on low flame.
