Chicken & Potato Gravy

Chicken & Potato gravy is a tasty and spicy gravy which goes perfect with plain rice and Roti. Onions are ground into fine paste along with spices to give a flavourful curry. I have used very less spices ( elachi and lavang) to avoid the overpowering of masala taste. Grinding onions and tomatoes gives a thick delicious gravy and also enhances the flavour.

Ingredients :

250 gms Boneless Chicken, Cut into small piece
2 Potatoes, Cut into pieces
2 Onions, chopped
1 Elachi
1 Lavang
2 Bay leaves
2 Tsp Ginger garlic paste
2 Tomatoes, chopped
1/4 Tsp Turmeric powder
1 Tsp Red chilli powder ( Adjust according to taste bud )
1 Tsp Coriander powder
1/2 Tsp Cumin powder
2 Tbsp Curd
Salt to taste
2 - 3 Tbsp Oil

Method :

Grind chopped onions along with lavang ( Clove ) and elachi into fine paste. Keep aside.

Grind tomatoes into fine paste and keep aside.

Heat oil in a non stick pan and add bay leaves followed by the ground onion paste and ginger garlic paste.

Saute till the onion paste turns light brown colou…

Apple & Tomato Salad using Chickpeas Dressing

I was excited to get paired up with one of my favourite blogger Rafeeda from "" for Shh Cooking Secretly Challenge after a very long time. I love all her recipes and especially food pictures which shows the exact texture of the dish. I had to mention that she is a very cool person and also a wonderful baker.  As I had mentioned in lots of my Shh Cooking Secretly Challenge series posts about the rules, this time I was given Apple and Chickpeas as my secret ingredients. And the theme was Salads which is very much apt to this Summer season. By using Apples and Chickpeas, I prepared a quick and tasty salad and hope, I did justice to it . Instead of adding chickpeas in my salad, I gave a twist by preparing dressing using it to give a creamy texture to the salad. And also, the addition of fresh basil leaves gives a refreshing flavour.
