Batatya Gojju

It's a potato salad - South Canara side. It takes less than 5 minutes to put together if potatoes are already cooked.
Here's my Amma's recipe -
Amma's Batatya Gojju (Serves 4)
4-5 Yukon Gold potatoes
2 green chilies
1 1/2 cup plain yogurt, whisked
1 small onion, finely chopped (Optional)
Salt to taste
1 tsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1 red chili, halved
5-7 fresh curry leaves
1 tbsp freshly grated coconut
1. Pressure cook potatoes. Peel and dice them.
2. Mix salt, chilies, yogurt. Stir in potato cubes.
3. Heat oil in a small saucepan. Add mustard, cumin seeds, asafoetida, red chili, curry leaves.
4. Drizzle the tempered oil over the salad. Stir well.
5. Garnish with coconut.
Note -
1. If you like the flavor, use coconut oil for tempering for the authentic flavor.
