Creamy Baby potatoes

It is baby potatoes day for us. I made two dishes out of baby potatoes. Dum aloo and this creamy baby potatoes gravy. It was a scrumptious dinner with roti, Jeera rice, dum aloo and potato gravy. Dessert was left over coconut barfi and homemade falooda. :) After long time we had so much spread for dinner. Usually on a week night, our dinner is roti /rice with one vegetable gravy. Today was an exception.Week ends we eat out or I get time to prepare more than one dish and nice spread with rice, flat bread , dessert and juice.

Creamy baby potatoes is a onion tomato based gravy with lots of fresh cream and kasuri methi. It tastes similar to creamy paneer / shahi paneer. It tastes delicious and pairs well with both roti and rice. You can add paneer or green peas along with baby potatoes

Ingredients : 

  •  500 Grams Baby potatoes
  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1 Small Tomato
  • 1 Inch Fresh Ginger
  • 6 Garlic cloves

  • Preparation : 

    1. Chop onion in to big chunks and grind it to fine paste
    2. Chop and puree tomato
    3. Grind ginger, garlic and green chilli together to fine paste with 1 Teaspoon of water
