Chilli Stir Fried Potatoes

So, I am assuming we all so love potatoes. I said assuming please, because over the years, I learned that I shouldn't be absolutely "C" sure everyone love similar food. I bet I am not wrong, yes, we are all different, obviously. So obviously, one man's or one woman's potato is another man's or woman's poison (Rosemary Cheesy Potatoes, Curried Potatoes, Potato Bok Choy Soup & Rosemary Potato Egg Salad). Regardless, for Malaysian Indians like us, I am assuming again, we love a potato dish akin this Chilli Stir Fried Potatoes. Mainly for our rice meals, this potato dish is just one of it. There are millions of ways to potatoes. For those who have been faithfully cooking, I am certain you are with me (Spicy Chicken Chop Mashed Potato & Baked Salmon Baked Potato). In my house especially, we don't compromise on chillies/spiciness, most of the time, for a potato dish (Urulaikilangu Poriyal/Stir FryChilli Mutton Potatoes, Spicy Tuna Potatoes &  Tapioca/Kelangu/Ubi Stir Fry).

I can go on and go and quote many other potato dishes, I don't think you should also limit yourself to to Masoor Dhal Sambar/Dhal Curry or Garlic Tomato Rasam. Allow me to link some choices for this Chilli Stir Fried Potatoes (Dhal Vegetable Soup, Moor Kolumbu/Yogurt Curry, Fish Okra Soup, Cauliflower Curry, Tomato Vegetable Soup, Green Moong Dal Curry & Tomato Cumin Soup). Go ahead, give a go to making Chilli Stir Fried Potatoes, trust me, you don't have search far and beyond for the ingredients. Look within your pantry and fridge, I believe you will find them. Potato, butter, dried red chillies, mustard seeds and coriander leaves (Bonda, Lemongrass Chilli Potatoes, Potato Green Peas Curry, Egg Potato Curry, Potato Salted Fish Sambal, Potato Gratin, Potato Rolls Mint Sauce & Baked Cheesy Potatoes).

3 medium size potatoes (simmer till tender, cool down, remove skin and cut into chunks)
1 tbsp butter (or oil)
4 dried red chillies - cut into 2 or 3 pieces
4 shallots - chopped
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp chat masala/garam masala/all spice powder (whichever you prefer or have at home)
3 sprigs coriander leaves - sliced.
Salt for taste

Heat butter, add shallots, dried chillies, mustard and cumin seeds.
Stir for 1 minute or 2.
Add potatoes, coriander leaves and garam masala.
Season with salt.
Quickly stir all together over high heat.
Dish out and serve. 
Trend alongside "nava-k" on every other social media please.
