1.2 kg chat potatoes, unpeeled, halved 2 tsp saffron threads 50 ml olive oil, plus extra for shallow-frying 2 tsp each cumin seeds and coriander seeds 1 tbsp finely grated ginger 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped 2 long green chillies, thinly sliced 120 gm thick plain yoghurt Finely grated rind and juice of 1 lemon, or to taste 3 golden shallots, thinly sliced into rings 3 fresh curry leaf sprigs
