2. Slice the onion and chop up the tomatoes and then peel and cut the potatoes in halves.

4. Add some sugar and salt to make the onions turn golden yellow fast.
5. Also, add in the whole garam masala along with the whole dry red chillies and black pepper powder.
6. Next, when the onions have browned nicely, make a paste of the green chillies, ginger and garlic.
7. Add this in and cook for 4-5 minutes.
8. Now, set this mixture aside to cool down.
9. Next, add in more oil and fry the potato halves for a minute.

13. Add rest of the turmeric powder and the red chilli powder and mix well.
14. Then, cook well for 10-15 minutes on medium-high heat. This stage in Bengali is known as 'koshano' .
15. After your 'koshano' is over, add in two cups of water and pressure cook the whole thing for 3-4 whistles or 10 minutes on high flame .
