Wash the potatoes and pressure cook it for 2-3 whistles. Once it is cooled down, peel off the skin and keep it aside. Let the potatoes be rightly cooked not too hard, not too soft. Add sambhar powder, turmeric powder aand salt to the potatoes and sprinkle a very little of water and mix it well so the masala coats evenly on all the potatoes.
