Add the garlic and ginger paste, stir, turn heat up for 1 min
Take off heat, add ground spices, add back to heat, stir continuously for 2 mins, add splash water.
Add uncooked meat now, coat thoroughly.
Add tinned tomatoes and coriander stalks and either frozen or fresh coriander. Add parboiled chopped potatoes.
Turn heat up to gentle boil, then turn down to gentle simmer, lid on. Add water if needed, stir regularly. Leave simmering untill meat is cooked, I left mine gently simmering, really low for 45 mins( I used cooked lamb)
Turn off untill ready to eat, enjoy
Feel free to adjust chilli levels. This gave a lovely tingle at back of the throat.
