Soak the tamarind in warm water for 5 min and along with soak the chilies and coriander seeds. Make a fine paste of the same in a blender.
Heat oil in a wok and let the cumin seeds cackle. Add the diced onions and saute till translucent. Add the blend paste and a little water and stir till the raw smell is gone. Add salt and just enough water to get a paste-like texture.
Add the diced potatoes and stir gently till the gravy thickens and coats the potatoes.
Remove from fire and garnish with coriander leaves.
