    Peel and dice the onion. Pick the fresh coriander leaves from their stalks and roughly chop.

    Heat a frying pan and add a splash of sunflower oil. Add the onions and the mustard seeds to the pan. Once the onions are soft, add the turmeric, curry leaves, cloves and ground coriander to the pan. Cook for a minute or two before adding the new potatoes. Remove from the heat, mix well and then fold in the fresh coriander.

Season with salt and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the yogurt to the pan, bring to a simmer and then remove from the heat.
