Ingredients
  Potatoes 3 Large, boiled and peeled
  Salt To Taste
  Lime juice 1 Teaspoon (Or To Taste)
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Mustard seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Cumin seeds 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Asafoetida 1 Pinch (Hing)
  Peanuts 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), coarsely ground
  Sesame seeds 1 Tablespoon
  Turmeric 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Green chili 2 , finely chopped
  Cilantro sprigs 5 , chopped for garnishing
Directions

MAKING
1 Cut boiled potatoes into bite size cubes and keep them in a mixing bowl.
2 Sprinkle salt and lime juice on the potatoes and gently mix.
3 In a medium non-stick pan, heat oil.
4 Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds, allow them to splutter.
5 Add asofoetida, peanuts and sesame seeds.
6 Once the sesame seeds start to pop, add turmeric, green chili and curry leaves.
7 Add potatoes and gently mix until potatoes are evenly coated with the oil.
8 Cook on medium heat for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

SERVING
9 Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves and serve hot.

TIPS
If you have the time, allow boiled potatoes to cool completely before cutting them. This prevents the potatoes from breaking apart and getting mushy when you stir them.
This subzi is usually eaten with puri, an unleavened fried Indian bread, but also tastes great with chapattis.
