Peel the potatoes and prick them with a fork in places. Heal mustard oil in a pan and fry the potatoes till they are half done. Take the potatoes out and cool them down. Again, prick the half-cooked potatoes with a fork and put them back in the oil till they are cooked properly. Separately whisk curd, saunf powder, saunth powder, black cardamom, cinnamon, shahi jeera, hing and kashmiri chilli powder. In a pan heat mustard oil and add the whisked curd. Increase the heat of the pan and keep stirring till the curd comes to a boil. Once the boiling starts, lower the heat and let it cook for 5 minutes. Add the potatoes with a dash of water and salt. Cover and cook till oil floats on the surface. This should take about 15-20mins on low heat. Add more water if required. The final consistency should feature thick curry sticking to the potatoes. Serve it with Indian bread.
