Batate song/Saung

Remember the Batate Song picture I had posted along with Barley Dosa?
I just forgot to post it, today its Batate Song here in Aps Kitchen. Batato means Potato and Song is not a English song but meaning of Song is yet not found ;). This goes well with any kind of dosas or even with chapathis or roti or even dal ,rice and this song makes a wonderful combination J.
Here is what we need for batate song:
2 large potatoes
¾th cup chopped onions
1 small tomato finely chopped
1-2 tsp coconut oil
½  tsp tamarind extract or 2 peanut sized tamarind
2 tea spn chili powder or 6-7 red chilies
½ tsp mustard seeds
Curry leaves a sprig
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves to garnish

Boil and peel potatoes. Cut them into small cubes.
If using red chilies, grind them with tamarind to a smooth paste. (Ifusing  chili powder and tamarind directly mix it with tamarind juice).
Heat oil add mustard seeds and when they splutter add curry leaves and sauté for a second, now to it add onion and fry till they are translucent. Add in th tomatoes and sauté them till they are cooked and a little mushy. Add potatoes, chili and tamarind paste and salt to taste.
 Mix well and cook for at least 5 minutes on medium flame.
Garnish with coriander leaves and switch off the flame. 
Serve with Barley dosa or hot steaming dal and rice.

If you make the song at least 2 hours before or overnight also will do it will just taste Awesome.
Adjust the spice according to your choice.

Happy Cooking,
