3: Add the chopped onions, fry for about five minutes and then reduce the heat and leave to cook for a further few minutes.

4: Add the chopped potatoes and stir until they are coated with the spice. Add the rest of the spices and a bit more oil and stir for a few more minutes, making sure to keep stirring as the potatoes may burn otherwise.
