4 cloves of garlic, peeled and crushed
2 teaspoons (10ml) ground cumin
1 teaspoon (5ml) cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon (15ml) curry powder
1 tablespoon (15ml) garam masala
2.5cm (1 inch) cube fresh ginger root, peeled and grated

Method

Half fill a large saucepan with water and bring to the boil
Add the potato cubes and first 1/2 teaspoon of salt, bring to the boil, adjust the heat to maintain a good simmer, simmer until the potato is cooked (10-15 minutes) and then drain and set aside
Heat the vegetable oil in a large heavy-bottomed frying pan or saucepan over a medium heat
Add the onion and garlic, mix well and saute until the onion is soft and golden (5-8 minutes), stirring every minute
Add the ground cumin, cayenne pepper, curry powder, garam masala, fresh ginger and full teaspoon of salt, mix well and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often (the ingredients get very dry so take care to keep stirring to stop the ingredients from burning)
