RCI: Batate Song (Spicy Potato Curry - Konkani Style)

Her blog is an awesome repertoire of every Konkani dish one can think of and the best part is - they are simple to make and yummy to taste! No wonder.. I landed on her blog and finally decided on making 'Batate Song' a simple Konkani recipe.

With the little time I had on hand today, this tasty potato dish was an apt choice ..and Off this goes to Deepa's RCI: Konkani Cuisine. The authentic version is supposed to be very spicy, but I reduced the amount to suit my taste buds..:)


3 medium Potatoes, boiled, peeled
1/2 medium sized Onion, slit into thin slices
1-2 tsp Oil (Recommended: Coconut Oil)
2 tsp Red Chilli powder
1 tsp Tamarind paste
Coriander - for garnishing


1. Cut the peeled potatoes into chunks. Mix chilli powder with the tamarind paste, add couple of teaspoons of water to it if needed.

2. Heat oil in a pan and saute onions for 2-3 mins, until golden brown.

3. Add potato chunks and tamarind-chilli powder paste. Mix the contents well. Cook for 5-6 minutes on low heat to blend in all the flavors!

4. Serve with hot rice. Y.U.M.M.O.
