Lemongrass Chilli Potatoes

The love of our life is back again. The love for potatoes is delightfully handed over from me to you (bonda, potatoes with dried chillies and potatoes with anchovies). Though, remember, each potato dish from nava-k is not the same. I've never doubted myself, I hope you will also believe me. Believe akin trust is not only for love struck, but also for food love. Today confidently I bring you this lemongrass chilli potatoes. Not a vegetarians dish, can you get smart please if you prefer a vegetarian version. Do I have to teach you everything? Just don't use dried prawns, that's it. Is that so difficult? Thank you awesome followers. I will still love all of you no matter what. Indeed, this potato dish is a spicy, tad bit tangy and lemongrass scented oh-so-yum.     

3 medium size potatoes - simmer till soft and cut into medium size pieces  with the skin on
3 tbsp dried prawns - soaked in water for 10 mins, thereafter drain off water (omit for a vegetarian version)
I medium size tomato - slice thinly
4 shallots - slice thinly
2 sprigs curry leaves
4 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

To blend/ground (chilli paste)
4 red chillies
2 lemongrass

When oil is heated, fry dried prawns till crispy.
Remove and keep aside.
In the same oil, saute shallots.
Add chilli paste and tomato.
Cook till oil splits  and for a thick mushy paste.
Add potatoes and curry leaves.
Keep stirring until gravy dries up.
Add fried prawns and season with salt (use sparingly)
Give a couple of stirs and dish out.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
