U know GGNK, this dish of yrs could be made even better this way:
deep fry the diced potatoes so that they are crispy and golden. Once upon a time, I read somewhere that to make crispy potatoes, make sure that u towel dry the potato pieces before frying them. Dont add salt before frying, and also, fry them until they are tender, then remove them for some 5 minutes or so and then  put them back into the oil over high heat for the remaining one min or so, because they will begin to turn golden, and crispy. Then remove them from the oil. They should also consume less oil this way.

Anyway, after deep frying the potatoes, then u can put them aside.  Then stir fry yr green peas with garlic and attarughu  and onions over very high heat with a little oil, for a few mins until they begin to become tender then add yr other raw ingredients i.e yr cabbage,  and green pepper. You can as well add a little ginger and forget the curry powder in the process. Add either soy sauce to make it a chinese dish, OR cumin to make it an arabic dish. Dont forget a sprinkling of salt and some flavoring like maggi. Then lastly add yr fried potatoes into the dish, stir for a few more seconds till the cubes are thoroughly coated with the ingredients then serve hot.

PS stir frying is done over very high heat and in a shallow pan. Preferably have  a wok. A local version of a wok is the kwanon suya da a ke soya naman sallah a cikinsa. Get the small one, not the very large ones that accommodate a whole rago!.

I've always wondered how to fry potatoes without them soaking oil.
Abin da ya sa bana son frying dankali kenan.
Thanks for the tip.

GGNK and Husnaa, the only potato salad i ever did was the one using boiled potatoes, but this looks and sounds yummy too, so i will give it a try.

Husnaa, i will also use the tip u gave on how to make potatoes more crispy and less oily thanks, u know these days we all trying to eat and live healthy  ;D ;D, if u know what i mean  ;) ;)
Life is like a flower; more exquisite and precious when shared with others.
