Potato Egg Chilly Masala

Do potatoes cause gas?Read an article that says -potatoes don’t cause gas but they bring out gas from stomach that is already settled .Not sure about the authenticity of this info,but its hard to totally ignore this veggie,right?
Potatoes with skin is a good source of dietary fibre,so its good not to peel the skin before use.I had this so called habit of peeling skin every time,now started making bhajis with skin.Heard that its not good keeping potatoes in refrigerator,as it converts the starch in potatoes to sugar!

Ingredients for making,
Potatoes 3
eggs 2
onion 2
tomatoes 2
garlic - ginger paste 2 tsp
green chillies 2
pepper corns crushed 1 tsp
garam masala 2 pinches
turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
chilly powder 1 tsp
coriander powder 1 1/2 tsp
coriander leaves chopped 1/4 cup
mustard seeds few

Preparation Method,
Boil eggs, remove shell and keep aside.
Boil and peel potatoes.
Chop them into medium size pieces.
Chop onion, put in a grinder, just crush it.
Heat oil, saute onion and garlic - ginger paste.
Do this until onion is semi transparent.
Add all the powders and stir.
After 1 minute , add thinly sliced tomatoes, green chilly and coriander leaves.
Add salt, let it cook for a while, until the tomatoes are mashed well.
Put potato pieces ,eggs and mix well.
Serve hot with chapathi.
