Traditional dish, cooked the modern way

Had a sudden crave to eat the 'tomato' sauce luncheon meat with potatoes. Those who were brought up, during my generation, would be familiar with this dish. It's a very simple dish, cheap ingredients but it is a good dish to go with a bowl of rice. 

With just that 1 dish, I can eat my bowl of rice. Yummy tomato-y sauce with the luncheon meat and potatoes cubes. I tell you, a die-for dish during the days when I was young. I remember asking for it whenever my grandma took too long to cook it again. 

Now that I am a housewife, I have also cooked it a few times. The same way, same style to reminisce the old days. Today, I decided to cook it a bit different. I used hotdogs to replace luncheon meat, added cherry tomatoes cut into halves, added 1/2tsp sambal Chilli. Yummy. And my hubby over-eat his portion for dinner again. (As usual, his 致命伤)

This is what I cooked along with the favourite dish tonight. Yummy.

Tomato sauce with Hotdogs, Potatoes & Cherry Tomatoes
6 Cherry Tomatoes
1 Potatoes
4 Hotdogs
6 Tbsp Tomato sauce
