In a sauce pan heat oil, when oil is hot add the mustard seeds and allow to crackle.
Add the chopped onions, crushed garlic cloves and curry leaves, fry the onions until they turn brown.
Add the red chilli powder, ground masala powder and turmeric powder to the onions, fry for few more mins.
Add 1/4 cup of water to the frying onions and bring the mixture to boil. 
Add the boiled potatoes to the boiling onion mixture and season with salt.
Fry the potatoes on high heat until the water is absorbed and baby potatoes are dry.
