Schezwan Baby Potato Gravy

There are some dishes that make a come back to the table because of repeated requests from my folks.And this is one of those dishes!!

Generally, there are dishes that I make on a regular basis which are a part of our everyday meal and many that are cooked just for the blog.This was cooked for the blog but my folks loved it and I have been getting requests to make it again! Am yet to make this again and hopefully will be able to make it soon....




I used:

Baby potatoes- 1/4 kilo
Multi colored bell peppers- cut into thin strips- 1/2 of each color
Corn flour- 1 tablespoon
Chilli garlic paste- 1 tablespoon
Soy sauce- 1 teaspoon
Tomato sauce- 1 teaspoon
Onion-1 finely chopped
Spring onion-5 stalks, finely chopped, green and white parts separate
Garlic-2 cloves, grated
Oil-1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon
Salt to taste

Mix in a tablespoon of corn flour with 1/4 cup water.

Boil and peel the baby potato and take in a bowl.Add the corn flour,oil and toss well to coat.



Heat a tablespoon of oil in a pan and add the potato and cook on medium heat till the potato has brown patches.Keep tossing them around the pan else it will burn.Remove from pan and keep aside




Heat a teaspoon of oil and add the onion,garlic, spring onion whites and saute till the onion is soft. Add the bell peppers and cool for a minute. Add the sauces,potato and mix well.



Keep cooking till the potatoes turn a shade darker.Add salt, mix well.Add the spring onion greens, mix gently .Add the corn flour slurry.


Mix well and cook on low flame till the sauce thickens. Keep stirring gently so that the sauce does not stick to the bottom and burn.Cook till you get the desired consistency.Remember that the sauce will thicken on standing. Remove from heat and serve garnished with spring onion green as a for fried rice.


I served with baby corn fried rice.


Note:

The sauce will thicken on standing.If this happens, dilute it with a little hot water and heat through and cook till the sauce reaches the consistency you desire.

This dish was a part of the Combo meal that is the theme for Week 1,Day 1 Blogging Day #56 titled- Buffet on the table....

Take a look at all that was served so far on The Buffet On Table...


Bon Appetit...
