Combine chilies, ginger, cumin seeds & mustrad seeds in a small bowl. Heat ghee in a large pot. When hot, add the spices. When the mustard seeds start to pop, drop in the potatoes & cauliflower. Fry for 4 minutes or so.

Add the tomatoes, turmeric, coriander, garam masala, sugar, salt & half the minced coriander. Mix well, cover & gently heat for 15 minutes. If the vegetables start to stick, add a few drops of water. Top with remaining coriander & serve.

I like the spice mixture in this version of the recipe. I tried it, following the recipe and in my opinion there's not enough liquid in the recipe to properly cook the potatoes. In a second attempt I pre-cooked the potatoes and cauliflower for about 5 minutes and processed the tomatoes to make more liquid. This turned out much better.

Another issue is that the recipe is not clear for the uninitiated cook. I assume the coriander called for in the recipe is ground as opposed to seeds. Also the chopped coriander at the end should indicate coriander leaf or cilantro.

Ignore the comment that recommends pre-cooking the potatoes. Use plenty of ghee (or butter and oil) and fry the potatoes and cauliflower well -- and for at least five mins -- at the first stage. Do not worry if it sticks a bit it just adds to the flavour. Then turn it down very low for the second stage with a lid on.

Do not be "inventive", the recipe is perfection as it stands. It is a fine art not anything goes.
