Potato and onion sidedish

This is one of my favourite dishes. All the ingredients needed for this will be commonly available at home.


  • 2 potatoes
  • 2 onions
  • Grated coconut - 1 cup
  • Tamarind - small piece
  • Red chillies - 7 to 8
  • Salt to taste


  • Cut onion and potato into small pieces and set aside.
  • Grind coconut, tamarind and red chillies like a chutney.
  • In a thick bottom pan, take the onion potato pieces, to this add the ground mixture and salt to taste.
  • Add a little water, cover the pan and cook on a small flame for about 20 minutes till the vegetables boil and the water evaporates.

Tips If a banana leaf is covered on the pan, it adds to the flavour and tastes much better.

Preparation time: 30 minutes
