Palak Potato Gravy

                               Palak Potato goes very well with rice, Chappathi, Idli, Dosai etc.

Palak Potato Gravy

Ingredients :

 Sliced Palak Keerai            1 cup.
 Sliced potato     1 cup
Onion    1
Tomato   1
Chilly Powder  1 tsp.
Coriander Powder  1 tsp.
 Ginger, Garlic Paste   1 tsp.
 Pattai, Sombu   
 Grated coconut    4 tbsp.

Method :

1. Cook the Palak and Potatoes in a small pressure cooker just for 1 or 2 whistles. Slowly
    release the pressure carefully to retain the green colour.

2. Heat 1 tbsp.of oil, add Pattai, Sombu and then the sliced onions. Saute well.Add the
    GG Paste,Chiily Powder, Coriander Powder, then add finely sliced tomatoes ans saute
    till they shrink.

3. Add the cooked Keerai, Potato, salt anf the finely ground coconut. Mix well. Allow it to
    boil on a low fire for 4 to 5 mins.

Note :

If you are very particular about the white colour of the gravy, chilly powder, coriander powder can be avoided. Instead, 1 green chilly and 1 tbsp. of Pottu kadalai can be added with the coconut whili grinding. Those who want to reduce the coconut can also reduce it and add little Pottu Kadalai.
