- 500g potatoes peeled, and diced
- 2tbs olive oil
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1tbs mustard seeds
- 1tbs coriander seeds
- 1tsp turmeric powder

- Place potatoes in boiling water and bring to the boil. Cook for about 20 minutes until the potatoes soften and you are able to slide a knife through. Place in a colander and allow the water to drain off. Set to one side.
- In a saucepan sauté the onion in oil under a medium heat until the onion turn translucent.
- Add the garlic, mustard seeds, coriander seeds and fry for about a minute. Then add the turmeric, salt, pepper and water and continue cooking under a medium heat for a couple of minutes. The onions should form a bright yellow Marsala mixture.
- Add the drained potatoes to the Marsala and cook for about 3 to 4 minutes until well combined.
- Season further for taste and serve.
