Batate song is a spicy and sour potato curry very authentic and popular to konkani cuisine. Normally this curry when its served during wedding occasion, the colour is very very reddish and is extra spicy that kids most of the time avoid. Since I love spicy flavour, it suits me a lot. But when ur making at home, you can reduce the amount of heat according to ur likings.

Batate song can be prepared with or without coconut. I would say if ur going for sidedish, avoid adding coconut and if ur looking for gravy, for eg with idiappam, or with rice, then addition of coconut would be tasty. My version is with coconut and I had a nice combi with idiappam for dinner.


2 Cups Boiled Potato.

1 Onion.

3/4 Cup Grated Coconut.

6 Red Chilly (Kashmiri chilly)

2 tsp Coriander seeds.

1/2 tsp Tamarind extract.

Salt to taste.

Water as needed.


Heat 1 tsp oil in a pan. Add grated coconut, red chilly, coriander seeds and fry till coconut turns slight brown. Cool the mixture and grind into smooth paste adding tamarind extract plus adequate water. Keep it aside. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a another pan. Fry onion till they turn translucent. Then add the grounded masala with salt. Pour adequate amount of water and bring the gravy to boil. Add chopped potato and reduce the flame for 2 to 3 min covered with a lid. Stir again till the masala gets well combined with potato and the gravy turns thick. Serve hot with rice or idiyappam.

Unniappams is the most popular dessert or snack in Kerala prepared from rice, jaggery and with ripe bananas. Its truly an  irresistibly sweet in the form of brown balls deep fried delight. Actually there are many types of preparing unniappams where some people make it with rice powder and other method with soaked rice which I prefer the most as it taste even much better. Some add wheat flour or maida into the batter which I have not prepared yet. The thing which I love the most is when I bite those coconut bits in it. Tastes heavenly.  Here is my version of preparing this mouthwatering snack.


1 cup Raw rice.

3/4  cup Jaggery syrup.

2 tsp Roasted Sesame seeds.

1 Ripe Banana.

Pinch of Cardamom pd.

Pinch of Soda.

Ghee fried Coconut Bites.

Oil or ghee for frying.


Wash and soak rice for 6 hours. Drain the water and grind to a smooth paste. Transfer them into a bowl. Then add rest of all ingredients except oil or ghee. Mix well and allow the batter to sit for about 30 min. The consistency of batter should not be very thick not thin, so adjust accordingly.

Heat paniyaram pan. Add enough oil or ghee. When it gets hot, fill the holes with the batter only up to 3/4. Now cover with a lid and reduce the flame. Once the bottom side starts browning, flip in over to the other side and allow to cook. Once cooked, remove and drain on a tissue. Repeat the same process with the rest of the batter.


Banana can be either grinded along with the batter or can just chop them into the batter as what I did. Using any of this process will make the dish tastes good.
