Effortless and Flavorful: Easy Potato Sambal/Sambal Kentang Senang

Let's talk about potatoes - a versatile ingredient that offers countless cooking possibilities. Potatoes hold a special place in my household. Whether they're added to curries (Drumstick Potato Curry), stir-fried (Indonesian Potato Tauchu), or prepared as the beloved Potato Sambal, they are always a top favorite, especially on our meatless or vegetarian days. Today, I'm offering this simple this delicious vegetarian dish, designed for minimalists like me who prefer using pantry-friendly ingredients.

Here's the streamlined recipe: 
5 potatoes (peeled, diced into bite-sized pieces & mix some salt in) 
2 onions (roughly pounded) 
Bird's eye chilies (to taste, roughly pounded) 
Red chilies (to taste, roughly pounded) 
Fresh lime juice (to taste) 
Salt (to taste) 
Cooking oil (as needed)

Heat some oil in a pan, then add the diced potatoes. Fry them until they are fully cooked, then remove and set them aside.

Reduce the amount of oil in the pan, then add the roughly pounded onions and chilies. Sauté them until they become aromatic and slightly softened.

Reintroduce the fried potatoes and stir everything together.

Add fresh lime juice and season with salt according to your taste. Continue stirring until well combined.

Once everything is mixed and heated through, your simplified East Potato Sambal is ready to be served. Enjoy!
