Preparations:

1. Heat the oil in a heavy-bottomed pan on medium level and crackle the cumin seeds and the mustard seeds. Add the chopped onion and let it golden brown and then add ginger and garlic paste and let it cook briefly until the smell of ginger goes off. Add tumeric and curry powder.
2. Add the green peas and let it cook until slightly softer and then add the potato cubes and mix well. Add salt and water and let it cook on low heat for about 15 minutes. (keep an eye to make sure that the water hasn't completely dried out…if so…you can always add a little more depending on how you like it)
3. When almost done, add the lemon juice and take the pan off the heat.
4. Garnish with cilantro leaves.
Serve this with white jasmine or basmati rice or even naan

Personal Notes:
You can use a can of garbanzo beans if you'd like. The green peas out of the can gets a little too mushy. Try serving with a yogurt based dip, chutney or pickles ( found in most indian grocery stores )
