After peeling the potatoes,wash once to remove the starch.Then cut into chunks or any shape you want.
Before cooking boil the potatoes with a pinch turmeric,salt and shahi jeera for 5 min,no longer than that.
This helps to get added flavours into the potatoes,and they always keep their shape after cooking.
Do try it and see the difference.
