In a pot, bring some oil to the heat.
Add the onions and saute until transparent.
Add salt and stir.
Add the grated tomatoes, spices, and curry leaves.
Stir so that everything is well coated, add a little water at a time so that a nice thick paste is achieved.
Add the potatoes and add water to cover the potatoes, cover, and cook until the potatoes are soft.
