4 servings


  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled

  • 1 (3/4 inch thick) slice ginger, peeled

  • 1 green chile pepper, chopped

  • 1 ¼ cups water, divided

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • 1 pinch asafoetida powder

  • 1 teaspoon black mustard seeds

  • 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped

  • 4 teaspoons ground turmeric

  • 1 teaspoon salt


  1. Place potatoes into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and let cool enough to handle, about 10 minutes. Dice into 3/4-inch pieces.

  2. Cut ginger into 4 pieces and place in a food processor. Add green chile and 1/4 cup water; process into a grainy paste.

  3. Heat oil in a pot over medium heat. Sprinkle in asafoetida, then mustard seeds. When mustard seeds pop, put in onions, reduce heat to medium-low, and saute until translucent, 5 to 7 minutes. Add paste from blender and turmeric; cook for 1 minute.

  4. Add diced potatoes, remaining 1 cup water, and salt. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Lift cover and break potatoes into 1/2-inch cubes with a slotted spoon. Cover and cook until sauce thickens, about 3 minutes more.
