Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan. Boil the potatoes in salted water until tender, drain, then return to the pot to steam dry.

Heat oil in a non-stick ovenproof frying pan (approx. 24cm). Add the cumin, mustard and coriander seeds and stir until aromatic and the mustard seeds are popping. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, before adding the turmeric, chilli powder and flakes, and the ginger and garlic. Season with salt and cook everything for several minutes.  Add the tomatoes to the pan and coat well, followed by the potatoes and chopped coriander. Stir to coat everything thoroughly and cook for a couple more minutes.

Add beaten eggs. Cook over a low heat until the frittata is mostly set (about 5 mins, by which point the edges will have come away from the pan but the centre will still be liquid), then transfer to the oven until cooked through (7-10 minutes). 

Serve in wedges with generous spoons of raita/chutney and reserved coriander leaves.
