Pinch of onion seed (optional) and pinch of cumin seed (also optional - but very tasty)

Some coriander leaf if you have any

- Chop the onion sort of finely - and fry it in frying pan in a little vegetable oil.

- When the onions are soft throw in the pinches of onion and cumin seeds if you are using them. Fry it all  about for a bit.

- Whilst the onion pan is going - boil or microwave the potatoes (in their skins if you are using new potatoes) until they are soft - should only take 3.5 mins in microwave if using small ones.

- And also carefully cut a slit in the green chillie peppers that you will eventually stuff the mixture into.

- When the potatoes are soft - let them cool a bit - and then dice them up.

- Add them to the frying pan and add all the spices and stir it around until the spices have infused into the mixture of potatoes and onions - it should only take say 5 minutes or so.

- Then empty the contents of the frying pan into a small bowl and mash up the potato and onion mixture with a   fork until it is not so lumpy as before

- Then stuff all the mushed up mixture into the chillie peppers through the slits you created earlier - pack it all in real tight - but don't overfill. If you have any surplus mixture just eat it there and then.

- Then place the stuffed chillies into a frying pan with some more hot vegetable oil and fry for around 15 mins - turning over occasionally on all sides

- The outer skin of the chillies should be blistered and charred after a while - then transfer them to a baking tray and bake in a preheated oven (say 170 celcius) for a further 20 mins or so - this will soften the chillie peppers some more
