Boil potatoes, peel and cut them into cubes. Alternatively, use baby potatoes and poke them with a fork after boiling. Set aside.
In a grinder, add coriander, mint leaves, ginger, lemon juice and green chillies. Blend to form a smooth green paste.
In a kadhai, heat oil and add cumin seeds. Once they splutter, add hing and saute.
Add the coriander-mint paste prepared earlier and stir. Add the remaining spices: haldi, red chilli powder, amchur and salt to taste. Mix well.
Add the potatoes and combine all the ingredients thoroughly. Taste to adjust salt and spices as required.
Cook for around 2-3 minutes more. You can also add very little water to allow the mixture to coat the potatoes properly.
Garnish the potatoes with coriander or mint and serve hot. Enjoy pudina aloo dry or with chapatis/ puris.
