Heat the oil in a frying pan (skillet) and add the meatballs. Cook over a medium-high heat, turning often until browned all over (around 10-12 minutes).
Transfer the meatballs to a bowl and place the reserved cooked onions from earlier into the same pan.
Add the tandoori paste and cook for a minute on a low heat. Add the coconut milk and stock pot and stir together. Simmer for 5 minutes.
Add the meatballs back in to the pan and simmer for a further 3-4 minutes.

Add the spinach to the potatoes. Turn off the heat and place a lid on the pan for 3-4 minutes until the spinach has wilted.
