Vegetarian Fish and Potatoes Sambal (Sauce)

Basically its between non-vegetarian and vegetarian meals. When it's non-veg, the real deal or simply put, vegetables only. For the first time, I bought the vegetarian fish rolled with seaweed. I cook it in a spicy gravy with potatoes, soy sauce and curry leaves.  My other half eat but he wasn't pleased. He liked the taste but not the mock fish. Usually made with artificial flavouring and colouring. I do agree with the logic. So no more buying mock vegetarian ingredients.

250gram (1 block) vegetarian fish - sliced 
2 medium (about 150g) potatoes - boiled till tender, cool down, remove skin and cut into pieces.  

For the Sambal/Sauce
2 tbsp dried chilli paste (or as per taste)
5 shallots - sliced thinly
2 calamansi lime - squeeze out the juice
1 tbsp sweet soya sauce
2 sprigs curry leaves
Oil as needed
Salt for taste 

Deep fry mock fish in oil.
Remove and keep aside.
Do the same to potatoes; fry till crispy. 
Leave about 2 tbsp of oil in the same pan.
Saute shallots, add chilli paste.
Fry till aromatic.
Add curry leaves, soy sauce, fried fish and potatoes.
Squeeze in lime.  
Stir all in and remove from heat.
