To make this potato palya, I have just added onions and green chilies. However, if you want you can add some mustard seeds, curry leaves and turmeric powder. The subtle sweetness of the sautéed onions balances the earthy taste of the potatoes very well. Overall what you get is a mild and light tasting potato stuffing, similar to mashed potatoes, which has not been spiced.
