Prick the potatoes all over with a fork and place in a bowl. Add the marinade ingredients and toss well. Line a roasting tin with foil and put in the potatoes with the marinade. Cover and leave aside for at least 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 200 degC.
Baste the potatoes with the marinade then bake in the oven for 1 hour occasionally turning and basting until the potatoes are cooked and the skin is crisp.
Half the potatoes lengthways and scoop out the inside without breaking the skin. Set the skins aside.
Mash the potatoes in a bowl together with the corned beef, small onion, garlic, chilies, coriander, butter, tomato and cumin seeds. Season with the salt and black pepper. Mix in the beaten egg, cover and leave in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour to chill.
Divide up the chilled mashed potato into four and fill each of the potato skins. Deep fry the potatoes over a medium heat until brown, turning once. Drain well and serve garnished with the red chilies and sliced onion.
