Potatoes With Dried Chillies (Indian Style)

"Bonda/Fried Savoury Potatoes" was the first ever entry for a fried snack. Obviously potato is the star ingredient. Actually you know what? We hardly snack. I made just for a hands-on experience. Of course, for the learning curve to go higher. Usually, its dishes like this stir fried potatoes. Nice as a side dish for vegetarian or non-vegetarian meals. Nothing much you need. Just the usual inexpensive ingredients. Try out please. Possibly paired with rasam or sambar.

3 medium size potatoes - boil and cut into bite/chunk sizes (with the skin on)
5 dried red chillies - cut into small pieces (Adjust as per taste)
1 medium size onion - sliced thinly
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 small bunch of coriander leaves - sliced (Don't throw away the stalks. Use them too)
2 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, sauté onion and chillies.
Add the mustard seeds and turmeric powder.
Continue to stir until the seeds starts to pop/splatter.
Put in potatoes and season with salt.
Stir over high heat for a nice crispy outer layer.
Lastly, add the coriander leaves.
Stir and dish out.
