Cook the potatoes in pressure cooker for 1 -2 whistles, this saves time and energy. Alternatively you cook the potatoes in a sauce pan with water. This method would take about 15 -20 min.

Now peel the potatoes, cube it and keep it aside.

In a kadai heat the oil, add mustard seeds after it splutters add rest of the ingredients mention for seasoning and sauté for a min.

Now add the onion, green chilli, salt and sauté until translucent. Now add the peas and mix well. Add the cubed potatoes and about ½ cup of water, let it cook for another 5 min.

Mash potatoes with the ladle for the right consistency, cook in low flame for another 3 min. Finally garnish with cilantro and switch off the stove.

Yummy and delicious potato masala is ready. Make some yummy pooris and serve the potato masala with it.
