Hello folks ! I am back again with another authentic recipe from India with a touch of my own twist.

Lately I harvested few baby potatoes from my veggie garden and I couldnt think of anything better than this delicious gravy which goes well with any rotis, rice or bread.

Traditionally this recipe is prepared in mustard oil, since I do not use it , I have substituted it with the regular cooking oil ( Vegetable oil) .This gravy is a mixture of sour and spicy ( a rare combo , isnt it? ), its creamy texture makes the gravy look so rich and classy that you will almost drool seeing it😜

So lets move on to the detailed recipe below , Do try it and if you try do share your feedback here or in Instagram , you can find me on Instagram at pcn_homechef.
