Boil potatoes. Drain
water. In a bowl, add the potatoes and garlic cloves
. Keep potatoes a little chunky to add texture. Season with salt and pepper.
Heat the vegetable oil
on medium heat in a frying pan
. Cook the shallots until translucent, about 5 minutes.
Add the shallots
to the smashed potatoes. Add the smashed potatoes to a pan, sprinkle with salt and pepper and fry. Using a spatula
flip the potatoes constantly to allow them to crisp
up and turn golden brown, about 5 minutes.
