*** Some people  prefer to make Honey Chilli Potatoes by skipping the following procedures: 
1. Adding potatoes to the salted hot water in the First part (instead they just soak the potatoes in water)
2. Skipping the second part completely and switching to the third part directly. 
Well, yes you can skip. But, some prefer following the second part too which actually gives different texture, crunchiness, coating to the potatoes.
  
So, its upto you whether you want to follow the whole process or you want to skip. Its completely your choice. 


Enjoy! :)
