Potatoes & Anchovies (Ikan Bilis) Spicy Fried

First Bonda/Fried Savoury Snack. Then Potatoes With Dried Chillies. And now a different type. Pretty much another stir fried style. Fried anchovies for a nice crunch and curry leaves for aroma.

3 medium size potatoes - boil and slice with the skin on
2 tbsp  anchovies - soaked in water for 10 mins and drained
1 red chilli - remove seeds and sliced (for spicy version, leave the seeds)
1 green chilli - remove seeds and sliced
5 shallots - sliced thinly
3 sprigs curry leaves
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, fry anchovies until crispy.
Remove and keep aside. 
In the same oil, sauté chillies and shallots. 
Add potatoes, fried anchovies and curry leaves.
Season with salt. 
Stir and cook over high heat. Very quickly.
Dish out.

    I wonder whether you have been to "Ravi's Banana Leaf", located at Dataran 3 Two (32 Square) 19/1 Petaling Jaya.

    We went there the other night. The Curry was really fiery hot. I think maybe you might like it.
