Bring a saucepan of water to the boil; add the potatoes. Simmer for 8 mins until just soft. Drain; set aside.

Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a large, heavy-based pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3-4 mins until it begins to soften. Stir in the cauliflower, garlic, chilli and ginger, cook for 1 min, then add the ground cumin and turmeric. Fry for 2 mins, then cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 5-6 mins until soft.

Remove the lid and stir in the tomato purée and chopped tomatoes. Bubble over a medium heat for 6-8 mins until thickened. Stir in the stock and half the cooked potatoes. Remove from the heat and blitz with a stick blender until smooth. Stir through the yogurt and return the pan to a low heat. Season.

Meanwhile, heat the remaining oil in 
a small frying pan over a high heat.
Add the reserved potatoes and fry for 4-6 mins, turning frequently, until golden and crispy. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside to drain on kitchen paper. Serve the soup in bowls, scattered with the potatoes and topped with the nigella seeds and coriander.

Tip: Use fresh stock or vegetable stock pots instead of cubes to make this soup gluten-free.
