Chilli Aloo/Chilli Potato

Ohlalala Potatoes!!.Speaking about potatoes, I am assuming anyway, but I am wrong if I say, throughout the world, throughout the many years and till this day, many of us just so love potatoes? Did I say anything wrong? Correct me if I am when potatoes are the love for us (Chicken Curry Potato & Aloo Gobi). Say all you want, say whatever you want, in my house, potatoes will somehow, by all means, find their way into a dish. I suppose its due to our love for the love of potatoes. Each week, at least once or twice, a potato dish must come on board on our dining table. Obviously, a side dish for typical Malaysians like us (Brinjal Anchovies Stir Fried & Curried Tamarind Ladies Fingers/Bendi) who must have rice every day. Otherwise, for me especially, my food life will collapse. To boost my strength to showcasing to you another of my potato dish (Bonda/Fried Potato Balls), of course, how can on earth we Malaysian give up on chillies (Honey Chilli Chicken & Chilli Honey Clams), this simplicity Chilli Aloo/Chilli Potato is fam-fab as a team member for egg rasam or sambar. 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.
