Place the halved potatoes and drumsticks into a pressure cooker, add 1/4 cup of water. Cover the cooker, place the weight on and pressure cook until you heat three whistles. After three whistles turn off the heat. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
Once the pressure has released, open the cooker, peel the skin of the potatoes and dice them.
Once you have the potatoes and drumsticks cooked, the next step is to make the masala.
Heat a teaspoon of oil in a heavy bottomed pan; add the ginger, cinnamon and bay leaves. Stir fry for a few seconds. Add the tomatoes, turmeric powder, coriander powder, red chilli powder and asafoetida and saute until the tomatoes get cooked through and soft.
