Potato Gravy - Potato recipe

This Potato gravy is a very simple and quick recipe which goes well with roti and pooris. I prepare this as a side dish not only for roti but also for peas pulav, vegetable pulav and vegetable biriyani. My children love this (of course they love anything with potatoes). Do try this simple easy recipe and you will love it. Today we will learn to make a quick gravy with potatoes.

  57. Hi padhu,

    Why fry the potato after its cooked by pressure cooker?

    ReplyDelete

    1. You can add just boiled potatoes but if you saute it and add, the gravy is more tasty. That's all.
