Boil the potatoes in their skin.
Put them in a colander and run cold water over them.
Peel the potatoes and cut them into 2 inch sized pieces.
Heat the oil in a wok
Add mustard seeds and Bay leaf.
Allow the seeds to splutter.
It is a good idea to keep the lid on here, as seeds jump all over if you don't.
Add the ginger and onions. Fry until the onion is medium brown.
Turn the heat down and add all ground spices.
Give a quick stir to release flavours.
Add the potatoes, turn the heat up to medium and stir fry the potatoes for a few minutes, until all potatoes are well coated with spices.
Cook for a further 5 minutes on a low to medium heat, stirring gently from time to time, taking care not to break the potatoes
Add coriander leaves and serve hot
