When i was newly married, my husband’s nana nani had come visiting us. I was very bad with punjabi food then. The actual punjabi food not the restaurant waala punjabi food. So naniji and nanaji would teach me dishes that their grandson loves so that he is not deprived of punjabi food :P
This is one of naniji’s dishes with a little twist by nanaji :)

Method
Heat oil in a pressure cooker. Add saunf, red chilly powder, haldi, salt and saute till you get a little fried smell, and saunf turns golden. To this add peeled and cubed potatoes. I leave the perl on as i like the taste of it. Saute it for two minutes. Add water just enough to cover the potatoes and pressure cook it for 5 mins(2 whistles).

Once the pressure is released open the lid of the cooker. Add milk or cream, mash few potatoe pieces just to get a thicker consistency and boil for 5mins. Let the gravy be creamy and thick.

Garnish it with some toasted saunf and chopped coriander. It goes really well with pooris and rotis.20140731-115347 am-42827085.jpg
