The liberal use of coconut and spices leaves you in no doubt that this is a Goanese creation! This delicacy from Goa features potatoes in a tongue-tickling gravy, which is both tangy and spicy. While the gravy gets its tanginess from tomato pulp, the pungency is derived from a special paste of onions, coconut and spices.
It is the special way of handling the onions that makes this Goanese gravy very different. The onions are first roasted whole, and then peeled and blended with the other ingredients. This gives a unique, intense flavour to the gravy, which complements the potatoes beautifully. Indeed, Potatoes in Goanese Gravy is a real peppy accompaniment for ladi pav .
- Roast the onions on an open flame till they turn black in colour. Cool, peel and discard the blackened/ charred layer and slice the onions. Keep aside.
