Batate gojju

Potato gojju is konkani side dish, that is usually prepared when we are running out of ideas for a side to go with rice and a curry...although, it rarely happens....this is the second choice of potato dish , first being batate saung.
The same recipe is used to make Vaingana gojju( eggplant/ brinjal) where the eggplant is flame roasted, peeled and mashed up. Yumm!

Boiled potatoes – 2-4
onion - 1/2 a cup, finely chopped
Green chillies -4, finely chopped
Fresh grated coconut- about 1 tbsp
Corriander leaves chopped- 2 tbsp, finely chopped
Tamarind – 1/4 tsp
coconut oil - 1 tsp

Ingredients for Seasoning:
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Hing powder – 1/2 Teaspoon

Mash the potatoes and add all the ingredients adding a little water.
Season and add it to the mashed gojju. This requires no cooking.
