1Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan. Add the onions and stir constantly over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned. Add the garlic and ginger and stir constantly until the mixture is lightly golden.
2Add the salt, turmeric, pepper, paprika, chilli powder and garam masala and stir until the spices release their aromas.
3Now add the tomatoes and green chilli and stir constantly for 3–5 minutes, until the tomatoes begin to break down a little. Add the potatoes and stir for another 2 minutes.
4Pour in 1 cup water and stir until well mixed in; if the potatoes aren't covered in liquid, add a little more water. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to very low. Put the lid on and simmer for 10–15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender, stirring often to ensure the mixture doesn't stick to the bottom of the pan.
5When the potatoes are tender, add the peas if using, then simmer, uncovered, for a few more minutes, to allow the sauce to thicken and the peas to cook.
6Garnish with the coriander and serve hot, with basmati rice, roti or papadums.
