Baby Potato Masala Gravy is a creamy gravy made with baby potato in a rich onion tomato base with coconut cashew paste. The spices and the overall taste makes it an excellent side dish for rotis as well as biryanis.
One-pot dishes normally don't require a side dish. However, when you are having guests and need to make a feast even on a regular working day, rich gravies like this will work out best. We had guest dropping in and I had planned on making Badshahi Pulao with some Alasanda Vada. As I had mentioned we were making these vadas regular basis and planned only on this pulao and vada. When we knew our friends visiting us, we decided to make this gravy as well to make it complete.
Our gravies are always made with coconut base when we serve it with pulao and it is sometimes spicy too. This gravy was prepared with a mix of both freshly ground coconut with cashew paste. The pulao was very rich and hence I made sure the gravy wasn't very rich.
We all enjoyed this simple meal and our guests loved the combination. On other occasions had we knew it before, we would make pooris as well. Our guests didn't want anything else and enjoyed the dishes.
