1. Wash the baby potatoes thoroughly under a running tap. Since potatoes tend to accumulate a lot of dirt, it is very important to wash them properly.
2. Boil the potatoes in a pressure cooker for a whistle or two. Let it cool. After it cools down, peel the skin off.
3. Heat mustard oil in a pan and add the potatoes. Fry them a little till they turn brown. Add turmeric powder, kashmiri laal powder and a little bit of salt while they are being fried.
4. Strain the potatoes off from the pan. Heat some more mustard oil in the same pan. Add chopped onions, garlic and ginger in the pan. Let the onions turn translucent. Fry them at a medium flame. Once the onions start turning translucent, add a spoon of sugar. They will start caramelising faster. Now add the chopped tomatoes. Add some salt, keeping in mind that the potatoes have also been fried along with the salt. Let the tomatoes turn pulpy.
5. Now add corriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, kashmiri laal mirch powder, amchoor powder and let the masala sizzle. Keep it on a low flame so that the masala does not burn off the pan.
6. Add the potatoes back into the pan. Toss and turn it well, so that it is coated in the masala nicely. Add the tamarind pulp now. Stir it for a minute or two. Add slit green chillies.
7. Finish it off with chopped corriander, bhaja moshla (a spice powder made of dry roasted cumin seeds, bay leaf and dry red chillies). You may sprinkle some chopped onions as well over it.
