Ready to serve Potato dish

Batate is potato in Konkani. As all of us know potato is supposed to be the king of vegetables, and a host of dishes are made with potatoes in them . If potato is added as a combination to any dish , it really changes the taste of the dish. Supposing there is no vegetable at home other than Potato , that alone would serve the purpose to make a simple lunch/dinner. One can even think of just slice the potatoes and sprinkle salt to it and fry on the tava and have it as side dish with rice and dal. Its turns out great and is simple to make.

I would like to put up a dish called Batate saong which is a spicy dish prepared by Konkanis. It is nothing but a combination of onion and potato who are great friends among vegetables and when combined make wonders. The recipe is very simple and is a combination with rice and the konkani dali thoy.
