Step-1 Prepare potatoes
Start with peeling Yukon gold potatoes and cut them into small thin slices. Peeling potatoes is optional.
Soak sliced potatoes in cold water for about 15- 20 minutes.

The pan/skillet must be of a heavy base, preferably a non-stick pan.
To a medium-hot pan, add 2-3 tablespoons of oil. Add cumin seeds. When cumin turned brown, add mustard seeds.
Step- 3 Add potatoes and spices
Once mustard seeds started sputtering, it's the perfect time to add potatoes.
Also, add salt, pepper, garam masala and optional turmeric powder to the potatoes and mix to coat evenly.
