- Small handful finely chopped fresh coriander, to serve (optional)

- Cook the potatoes in a large saucepan of lightly salted boiling water for 10 minutes or until just tender. Drain well and set aside.
- Spray a non-stick wok or frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the red onion, garlic, ginger, cumin seeds and mustard seeds and stir-fry for 1-2 minutes. Add the potatoes and peppers and stir-fry for 6-8 minutes or until lightly browned.
