Cook the potatoes until tender. Peel and set aside. In the container of a blender or food processor, puree the onions, garlic, and ginger. In a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat, warm the oil.

Add the cumin. When the cumin darkens (1 to 2 seconds) add the purred onion mixture and saute until browned (about 12 minutes).

Add the salt, cayenne, turmeric, and tomatoes and cook until they soften (about 5 minutes). Add the peas and water, reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Halve the cooked potatoes and add them to the skillet and cook covered another 5 minutes.

Mix in the garam masala just before serving.
