- Lightly crush cardamom, cumin, fennel and mustard seeds. In a frying pan heat olive oil and fry seeds until fragrant and coloured. Add onion and bacon and fry until the onion has softened and caramelised. Place in a bowl.
- Press potatoes through a sieve into the bowl. Discard the skins. Add butter, some flaky sea salt and fresh black pepper, chopped coriander (or parsley), and a little lemon zest. Mix together well.
- To serve, heat the potato mixture in a pot until hot and serve as a mash. Alternatively, fry the mixture in a frying pan, turning frequently, to colour and crisp and serve as a hash with a poached or fried egg on top.
