Now heat a cooking pan. Add some vegetable oil to it. Also add some cumin, bay leaf, and asafoetida or hing to it.

After the masalas get cooked leaving behind their rawness, add the coarsely grated green peas and potato and add an adequate amount of water to make a gravy. Also, add some garam masala and let it cook on a medium flame for ten minutes.
