   large saucepan, add mustard seeds and onions.  Cook 5
   minutes until onions are soft, but not brown.  Stir in
   garlic and gingerroot; cook 1 minute more. Add cooked
   potatoes, chile, turmeric, cayenne and cumin.  Stir
   well. Cover and cook 3 to 5 minutes, stirring
   occasionally, until potatoes are very tender and
   coated with spices.  Serve hot, garnished with bell
   pepper strips.
