Potatoes With Dried Chillies (Indian Style)

Ohlalala Potatoes!!.Does roll us back and froth from ancient years till this day, potatoes are still so close to all our hearts. We love potato to its core, don't we? I don't know about you, neither never have I believed in speaking on behalf of anyone, every meal in my house in a way or rather begins with potatoes (Bonda/Fried Potato Balls, Curry Chicken Noodles, Mutton Mee Hoon Soup & Spicy Minced Mutton Potatoes). Can't deny, won't deny, wouldn't dare deny, this is a vegetarian side dish. So simple, so easy, I always also believe we should start with the basics when we have not graduated with a diploma in home cooking. Potato with dried chillies is an absolute when teamed with rasam or sambar. Please believe nava-k. She has not, she will not and she will never let her followers down. Take care lovelies.

3 medium size potatoes - simmer 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. 
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!
