In the 'Journey Through the Cuisines', I have come to the next letter in the alphabetical order, S. I found innumerable options for this letter but chose to go with this simple and hearty gravy. Since there are potatoes in this gravy it was a super hit with folks at home.

Method Of Preparation -

Boil the potatoes and set aside.

Make a smooth paste of peanuts and green chili adding about half cup of water.

In a heated pan, add ghee and the rest of the seasoning.

Pour the peanut paste along with some more water and let it come to a rolling boil.

Add in the tamarind extract, salt and jaggery and add in the boiled potatoes.

Let the mixture thicken a little and remove from fire. [Keep in mind that the Amti thickens as it cools].
