Potato Saung

I am a real lover of konkani style cooking.Almost all of their dishes are my favorites especially those like patrade,spicy idle etc.One among them is potato saung.As i have already said my hubby enjoys anything prepared out of potato, well this one is my favorite too.This is a yummy dish with rich taste of potato going on with the blend of spicy dry chillies and tangyness of tamarind.Simple and a easy dish as most of my dishes here.

Potaoes -3 large [cooked]
Onion -1 large
Tamarind pulp-1.5 tsp
Dry chillies -8-9
turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
cumin -1 tsp
oil - 2 tsp
water -3 cups
salt -as per taste
hing powder -1/2 tsp
fresh coriander- 1 tsp

1.Soak the dry chillies in warm water and keep aside for 30 mins atleast.[This gives a wonderful color as well as makes the dish more pulpy and add up to the flavour].
2.Now break down the cooked potatoes into tiny chunks and keep aside.
3.Puree the soaked chillies,tamarind and a little water into a smooth paste .
4.Take a pan add 2 tap of oil add 1 tsp of cumin and just when it starts splutters add onion and fry till they turn transparent.Then add potatoes and add the paste of tamarind and chilly to it and add enough water and season with salt and pepper and bring to a boil and simmer and cook for 10 mins.
5.Garnish with freshly chopped coriander leaves and serve hot with parata's ,simple rotis or even with rice served withn curds at the side.
