  1. Bring a pot of water to boil, add the eggs and boil for 10 minutes.
  2. After ten minutes add the salt to the water and add the potatoes with the eggs and boil for another five minutes.
  3. In a small frying pan add the spices (coriander, ginger, curry, pepper), and toast them over low heat for about two minutes, or until the spices become aromatic.
  4. Drain the potatoes and eggs, and add the butter to the pan with the spices, stir the spices into the melting butter, and add the potatoes and coat.
  5. Peel and chop the eggs into bite sized pieces, and add to the pan and toss again.
  6. If the spices and butter become to dry to toss the potatoes and eggs with, add 1/4 cup of water or milk to thin it out.
  7. Add the cilantro and salt to taste, and cook for about a minute longer until all flavors are combined.
