You can use the normal potatoes too ,boil and cut in cubes and proceed .
You can add minced ginger as well or can totally skip ginger garlic .
If you want of more tangy you could add anardana powder and also squeeze in some lemon juice .
I prefer frying the potatoes before tossing in the spice powder you can skip this and use boil potatoes instead .
