Vegetable Gravy is a popular accompaniment to all kinds of Pulao which are basically bland. One can add any vegetable of choice to the gravy. Here I have added only potatoes, Drumstick and peas to it. It goes equally well with Roti and Bread too.
- 1 Drumstick
- 2 potatoes
- 100 gms of shelled peas
- 1 tomato
- 2 onions
- 2 inch piece of ginger
- 5 green chilles
- 1/2 tsp chilly powder
- A large pinch of turmeric powder
- 4 tbsps Besan/ Chickpea flour
- 1 inch piece of dalchini /cinnamon
- 3 lavang / cloves
- 1 elaichi /cardamom
- 1 heaped tsp jeera / Cumin seeds
- 1/4 tsp methi/Fenugreek seeds
- 1 tsp tamarind paste
- 2 sprigs curry leaves
- Coriander leaves
- 2 tbsps Ghee/ clarified butter
- 5 tbsps oil
Deskin the potatoes and cut them lengthwise. Chop the Drumstick into bite sized pieces. Grate the ginger. Slit the green chillies. Chop the onions and tomatoes fine. Cook the potatoes, Drumstick and peas together with half of the grated ginger and green chillies and salt. Heat the ghee and oil mixture. Add the jeera. After it splutters add the Methi, lavang and dalchini to it. Add the remaining green chillies and ginger along with the onions and roast till translucent. Drop in the Besan and roast till it gives an aroma and turns golden brown. Add the chopped tomatoes, tamarind paste and curry leaves. Roast till the tomatoes are mushy. Add the Boiled vegetables, salt and three glasses of water. Boil well. Garnish with coriander leaves.
