Heat one tablespoon of oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion, and cook until browned. Stir in 200g of yoghurt, curry powder, chilli powder and 2 tablespoons of coriander. Cook and stir until most of the liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat, and stir in the remaining coriander.
Lay out one sheet of filo, and cover the rest with a damp towel. Place about 1 tablespoon of the onion mixture onto the corner, not too close to the edge of the sheet of filo, then fold up into fourths towards the opposite side to enclose the filling. Starting with the filled end, fold towards the other end in a triangle shape, pressing the edges with moistened fingers to seal. Repeat with remaining filling and filo.
Heat 2cm of oil in a deep heavy frying pan over medium-high heat to 185 degrees C. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining yoghurt, cream and water. Dip the samosas in the yoghurt mixture, then dredge in flour, and shake off the excess.
Fry in small batches so they are not touching, for about 4 minutes, turning once. Drain on kitchen roll and serve warm.
