Baby Potato in capsicum and tomato puree – Vegan

Baby potatoes in tomato and capsicum puree is a unique simple delicious side dish. In this recipe potatoes are cooked and soaked in tomato capsicum gravy. The gravy is the blend of ginger-garlic, fennel and sesame seeds.

This is a vibrant gravy has a satisfying, long-simmered taste, and tomatoes loaded with cancer-combating lycopene.  The peppers are blended to release its pungent flavour to the gravy. Onions and Garlic intensifies their flavour. The gravy can be made into a rich, creamy broth or leave the consistency a little chunky, as desired.
