This is a very unique and nice potato side dish. We all enjoyed it immensely. I did make a few changes though. I used 1 tbsp. of low-fat yogurt as a substitute for cream. Also, I toned down the spiciness by using just 2 red chillies instead of 4. I used about 1 1/2 tsps. of salt. I love dried kasoori methi and I used 2 tsps. of the same(crumbled it between my palms before adding it to bring out its full flavour). Also, I think that when we add freshly powdered spices(masalas), the dish at the end tastes much better. Keeping that in mind, I used freshly powdered cumin and corriander seeds. I did add 1/4 cup water as well in step 6. Also, in step 6, I microwaved on HIGH for 6 minutes. I served these hot with rotis and yogurt, and oh, how they ate! This will also make a good filling for dosa. Just make it as above and incorporating the changes I made and then mash the mixture and stuff inside a dosa(crepe).( This will make a unique and tasty masala dosa!). Thanks a tonne for posting!
