Crispy, deep-fried potatoes are simmered in a rich onion-tomato gravy offering a bang of flavours from whole spices and masalas that are usually present in our kitchen. Whole spices like black peppercorns, cloves, cardamom and cinnamon stick can be credited to make this potato-based dish a real treat. Curd is added for a tinge of sourness while cashew nut paste thickens the gravy while making it creamy and velvety.
