Potato and Onion Saung Recipe

This is for the spice lovers!!! Baby potatoes in a fiery red onion gravy. Though the spice level can be adjusted to one’s preference it tastes best when it is on the spicier side. Goes well with string hoppers, rotis, rice, or even with bread.

Ingredients :

  • 500gms baby potatoes
  • 5 large onions sliced fine
  • 5 tsps chilly powder
  • 2tbsps tamarind paste
  • Salt
  • 5 tbsps Parachute Coconut oil

Method :
Pressure cook the potatoes and peel them. Heat 5 tbsps coconut oil. Add the sliced onions and roast on a high flame so that half of them get browned and the other half are translucent . Add the chilly powder and toss for a few seconds. Add the tamarind paste, salt, potatoes and enough water to make it a gravy. Drop in the boiled potatoes. Boil well so that the potatoes absorb the masala.

Note: this is one variety of Saung. I will be posting another variation which is not as runny as this one.
