Cooking Instructions:


Wash and clean the potatoes and pressure cook for 3 whistles. Do not overcook it, since the gravy won't taste good. Once it is cooked, peel off the skin and cut into small cubes.

Meanwhile, heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and add onions to it and fry till it becomes golden brown and add tomatoes at this time and cook for few seconds. Switch off the flame and let the mixture to cool. Once it is cooled, grind this mixture to a fine paste.




 Heat 2 tbsp of oil in a pan and  saute it with aniseed. Add the grind paste to it and saute for few seconds. Add ginger garlic paste, coriander powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, chilly powder,  and garam masala and fry it until the raw small leaves off the dish. Now add green peas and required amount of salt and a cup of water and cover the pan with a lid. Let it cook for 5 minutes and by this time the green peas will get cooked. Open the lid and add the cooked potatoes to it and let it cook until the masala coats over the potatoes and the gravy thickens to the required consistency. Garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.

Side Dish: This gravy tastes too god with chapati, naan and poori and even with dosas.
