Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add the cumin seeds to the heated oil and let them sizzle for a few seconds.

After that, add the hing, garlic, and dried red chilies. For extra heat, break the dried red chilies before adding them to the pan. 

Cook for 1 minute, or until the color of the garlic begins to change. After that, toss in the chopped onion.

Cook for 3 minutes, or until the onion is tender and transparent.

Toss in the chopped potatoes and stir to combine.

3 tablespoons water, turmeric, coriander, red chili powder, and salt.

Toss to combine until the masala is well distributed among the potatoes. 

On medium heat, cover the pan with a lid and cook the potatoes for 6 to 7 minutes, or until almost done. Every 2 minutes or so, open the cover and stir. 

Slowly drizzle in the chopped spinach. After each addition, stir until the leaves have wilted. After adding all of the spinach, cook for 3 to 4 minutes. 

Mix in the garam masala. If you want to keep things simple, leave out the garam spice. 

Squeeze in the lemon juice and stir to combine. At this stage, there should be no water left.
