  • Add chopped onions and cook until onions turn translucent.
  • Add tomato paste and 2-3 tablespoon water. Mix well.
  • Add all the powdered spice. Follow up with salt.
  • Cook for about 3 minutes or until the raw smell is gone.
  • Now add the half-cooked potatoes and gently toss them around to get an even mix of masala on the potatoes.
  • Close the lid and cook for about 15-20 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
  • If required, add a little more water and cook for another 5- 10 mins.
  • Garnish with cilantro and enjoy!



Note: If you are using fresh tomatoes instead of paste, use 2 tomatoes and blend them without water. Cook the blended tomato paste until thickens.
