Boil potatoes with salt. Peel the skin and mash them well. Keep aside.

Take 2 tsp of ghee in a small skillet. Add ½ tsp mustard seeds and let splutter, and then add ½ jeera, ¼ tsp fenugreek seeds, ¼ tsp vammu, hing and 1 red chili. Fry till all items are roasted well and a nice aroma fills the room. Then add chopped chilies, ginger and curry leaves.

Transfer tadka alone from the skillet and add the mashed potato in the skillet and mix well, add water if the paste is very thick. Remove from flame in 2 minutes.

In a vessel take curd and beat is nicely without adding water. Add turmeric, salt, chopped coriander and the previously made tadka- poppu. Then add cooked potato mash and mix well.
