For pickled shallots: Combine all ingredients and let sit for at least 1 hour, but longer is better. Can be refrigerated, sealed, for up to 2 weeks.

For potato bites: Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Slice cooked potatoes in half lengthwise and arrange on a platter. Place a heatproof skillet in oven for 5 min. Remove preheated skillet from oven and arrange slices of cheese across the bottom. Place back in oven until cheese is melted and bubbling, about 2 min. Working quickly, top potato halves with a piece of pickle, a scoop of melted cheese, a spoonful of pickled shallots and a sprinkle of curry powder. Serve immediately.
