1. Boil the potatoes in lightly salted water to cover until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain, let cool, then peel them, put them in a bowl, and toss well with the turmeric. (If the potatoes are large, cut each one in half.) Heat about 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick wok or saucepan over medium-high heat and cook the potatoes, stirring, until golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl.
2. Add the remaining oil to the pan and cook the cinnamon and cardamom pods, stirring, a few seconds. Add the coriander, cumin, and fenugreek seeds, then add the ginger, green chili pepper, and asafoetida and stir about 1 minute. Return the potatoes to the pan, add the salt, and cook everything together about 2 minutes. Add the yogurt, a little at a time, stirring constantly to prevent it from curdling.
3. Add the water and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover the pan, and summer until the potatoes are very soft and almost breaking, 5 to 7 minutes. Mix in the cilantro. Transfer to a serving dish, sprinkle with the black pepper on top, and serve.
