Batata songh is one of the favourite dishes of all Konkani s. Batata means potatoes. This dish is very spicy . I learnt to cook this dish from my Amma, this dish is prepared with lots of red chilly and tamarind paste.
This dish is a combination of spicy red chilly and sournes of tamarind pulp. It tastes too good with rice and dalithoy . Its very good combination with neer dosa (paan polo) also.
