Potatoes cooked in coconut-redchilli paste (Known as Batate Hummaan in Konkani)

Batate Hummaan...means Potato curry.This is a very quick and delicious curry and prepared a lot in south as well as north Karnatake.This curry turns out delicious because of the flavor of coconut and coconut oil.

2 big potatoes( cut in to big chunks)
1 cup shredded coconut
4-5 whole red chillies( depends how hot you want the curry)
1/2 tspn tamarind(imli) paste
Salt as per taste.
Pinch of Asefotida(hing)
1 tspn coconut oil( make sure it is pure coconut oil.)
1 tspn Oil to fry red chillies.

In a pan take 1 tspn oil and fry the whole red chillies. Add this red chillies to coconut along with tamarind paste and make a fine paste.In another pan add water and potato chunks and cook till they are cooked.Add the paste and let it boil for 5 mins.Add water to curry (depends on what consistency curry you wish to make). Add salt, hing and 1 tspn of coconut oil and let it cook for 6-8 mins.Batate hummaan is ready to be served with hot rice and curd.(Curd is generally taken as the curry tend to become hot because of red chillies).
