Potato Gravy/Arachi Vitta Urulai Kuzhambu

Everyone at home loves potatoes as any form, eventhough i wont cook them often..Last week, we got some fresh baby potatoes from a farm house and i couldnt stop myself making dishes out of those cute baby potatoes..Usually i make simple gravy with potatoes with tamarind extract and usual spice powder, but this time i wanted to make something different with freshly prepared masala, thats why i named this potato gravy as arachi vitta kuzhambu which means gravy prepared with grounded masala..This gravy tastes super delicious, definitely a fingerlicking gravy, we just enjoyed having this gravy with fryums and hard boiled eggs..Needless to say that this gravy tastes more delicious even after a day, serve it with rice,dosas or along with rotis, you will enjoy this tangy and delicious gravy...Sending this gravy to Harini & Jaya's Design A Menu, a wonderful event where we have to design a menu with the ingredients given by Harini and Jaya...

Here comes my menu..
Appetiziers: Carrot & Moongdal Vadas
Main course: Potato Gravy,Carrot and capsicum Zunka,Tindora fry
Desserts: Carrot Moongdal Kheer, Honey glazed pineapple bites
