Potato in Poppy Almond Gravy

Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Got bored with regular potato dishes..Then u should try this yummy Potato in Poppy Almond Sauce sauce dish. Rich in color n taste this potato dish accompanies with any thing....

One day i was preparing ingredients for marinating the chicken. I was bit bored with our regular fry n gravy chicken dishes, n suddenly butter chicken came into my mind. As i wont marinate chicken for Butter Chicken, the marination was useless. I jus kept in freeze thinking to use it some time later. The other day, i boiled some potatoes to make potato masala curry. But this marination came into my mind n i thought ..why shouldn't  i try a new dish. So imm, i marinated boiled potatoes in yogurt masala gravy.But this doesn't satisfied me. So, i soaked some poppy n almonds in very little amount of milk n made into a coarse paste n i had done everything..
To my surprise, this colorful potato-poppy-almond curry is so tasteful, that no one can resist to it... Really, it's so delicious... We had it for 2 days n he jus loved it...

Yes, I agree it looks very unique and rich. Like the base of poppy and almonds sauce...must be very creamy, then.
