1/2 tsp    mustard seeds

few         curry leaves
 1. Wash and cut the potatoes in half lengthwise, skin on. Cook it in salted water, until the potatoes becomes tender.

2. Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds after it splutters add the red chillies and curry leaves, fry till it becomes crispy. 
3. Add the methi leaves  and stir fry for few minutes, lower the heat, add the chilli powder, cumin powder and salt.
