Konkani - Red Hot Potatoes

This recipes comes from Dancer and Graphic artist Martin James. Martin, who originally comes from New Zealand, is now living with his wife and children in Copenhagen as he is currently principal Dancer with The Royal Danish Ballet. You will be able to find out more about Martin when his Biography page is published.

Being so gifted it seems unfair that Martin should also be talented in the kitchen as well but he has agreed to share some of his recipes with us which is great news.

"Potatoes (also called Batata in parts of India) spiced up with tomatoes and onions give a curry that will add zing and taste to any meal".


4 big potatoes boiled and cut into cubes
2 medium onion, sliced finely
1 big tomato, chopped finely
1 teaspoon red chilli powder or as per taste
1/2 teaspoon tamarind paste or as per taste
4 tablespoons oil
salt to taste


  • Heat oil on medium level in a pan for about 2 minutes. Add finely sliced onions and fry on medium heat till they are lightly browned.
  • Now add red chilli powder and fry for a few more seconds on low heat till you get a good roasted aroma.
  • Add chopped tomatoes and fry again on medium to low heat for 3 minutes or till the tomatoes are tender and the oil has left the sides of the pan.
  • Add the tamarind paste and the boiled potato cubes. Sprinkle some water and salt to taste. Mix thoroughly. Cover and keep on low heat for about 4 minutes.
  • Serve hot with subtly Tempered Rice (Nucchi), white rice or Indian bread (Roti).
