  • Place the ingredients for the spice mix in a little bowl and set aside.
  • Cook the potatoes in boiling water, to which has been added a pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon turmeric. When tender, drain the potatoes and mash coarsely. Set aside.
  • In a heavy based skillet, heat the oil and saute the curry leaves and dried red chillies until the chillies have darkened in color.
  • Add the onions, chopped green chillies, cilantro leaves, remaining 1/2 teaspoon turmeric, the asafoetida and the spice mix, and cook until the onions are soft and translucent.
  • Fold in the potatoes and a little water to just moisten.
  • Mix well to ensure even distribution of spices, and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently, but taking care not to mash the potatoes further.
  • Add some lemon juice to taste and serve immediately.
