The onions should be finely diced, and the garlic and ginger should be minced. Cut off the central core and chop the bell peppers into slices after removing the ends. Potatoes should be peeled and roughly chopped. The lime should be zested and juiced, with the zest set aside for serving. Set aside all of the vegetables.
