Fill the sink with some cold water and ice. Boil a large pot of salted water and carefully put a leaf at a time in. Boil for about 30 seconds then put in sink bath. When all are cooked and cooled, drain and pat leaves dry. Using the same water boil the chopped/diced potato and cauliflower until cooked but still firm, drain. Saute onion in a little oil. Once the onion is yellowing, reduce heat to medium-low and add the mustard seeds, coriander, garam masala, cumin, hot pepper, ginger, as it cooks, try to break up the mustard seeds with the back of your flipper. After about 5mins remove from heat and stir in cooked veggies and cilantro. Season with sea salt and mix well. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spoon filling into center of chard leaf and roll like a burrito. Place rolls in a baking dish, pour a small amount of water over and cover with aluminum foil.
