Gravies are often the star of any meals and having a good creamy gravy can make your meal a 
great one.
This egg n potato curry makes such an awesome gravy with the flavors of both egg n potato and all the spices in it. This is a very easy recipe which goes well with Appam , chapati or even rice.
Its an instant hit in my nest, especially on a very lazy day :) Njoy it !!!!

    Hi Sarah,
    I tried this out but it didn't come out well. I will have to say that whenever I try your non veg recipies from your site, it lacks enough spices. I have tried many of your recipies and all your veggie stuff comes out well but for all the non veg stuff, I have to add so much of extra masalas. I wonder if you use the exact tsp n tbspn measure when you try these.

    Sarah Naveen said...

    Anon , as in Anon , anon?
    So sorry to hear that.. and to be honest this is the first time , i am hearing my recipes lack spices. usually people say my recipes are spicy. may be you are on the other edge ...if you are talking about heat as in chili powder , thats a different ball game ... and thank you for saying my veg recipes came out good...I was always appreciated for my non veg dishes. The only solution I can tell you is , as i always say " use spices as per your liking ;)"...Dont you think , i cant cater to everybody's spice needs ..After all , I post here , what i make right?.

    Hi Sarah,
    Thanks for replying. I m surprised that people comment on your food being very spicy. We like the medium level spice bit I guess the difference could be because of the spoons that we use. I try to use the exact tsp n tbspn measure that you specify for all the new dishes that I try out. Anyways thnks for all the recipies its definitely o.k for not being able to satisfy everybody's needs:)

    Binitha said...

    Great Receipe. Loveed it. Love your blog too. Clean look Keep on with your passion.. it sure fills our tummies:)

    Sarah Naveen said...

    Hey Binitha..
