Sautéd Potato with Fresh Spice Powder

Another recipe from Tasty Palate.  This is a variation to the usual shallow fried potato curry that I make generally with rasam and hot rice.  The freshly made spice powder adds to the taste.

Boiled potatoes - 4 medium
Salt to taste
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp

Spice Powder - roast and grind to a coarse powder 
Black gram dal  (urad) - 1/2 tsp
Bengal gram dal - (chana) - 1/2 tsp
Coriander (dhania) seeds - 1 tsp
Red chilies - 4

Oil - 2-3 tbsp
Curry leaves - few
Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida - large pinch
Cumin ( jeera ) - 1/2 tsp

Heat oil in a wok
Add the mustard, allow to splutter, add cumin, asafoetida and curry leaves
And then the potatoes, turmeric, spice powder, salt
Toss till well coated.
Fry for a while till the potatoes get a golden crust
