Scrub and steam the potatoes till they're tender. Cool and peel them.
Take a bowl and mix salt (to taste), sugar, chilli flakes, turmeric powder and semolina together. Coat the potatoes well with this mixture.
Heat the ghee on a pan and saute green chillies and garlic for 10 seconds. Add the spiced potatoes and cook on low heat for 6-8 minutes. Keep tossing and take off heat when the potatoes have browned and semolina is crisp.
Serve hot with lime wedges.
