Special Information :

The cooking time is approximated depending on the potato. I used new potatoes so they cooked faster. Older ones might take few minutes more. You can mash one of them with a spoon and check.

 Running short of time, alternatively, add boiled potatoes also. Asafoetida has a dominant taste in this recipe.
