Peppery Potato Gravy - Pepper Potato Korma Recipe - Side dish for idli / dosa / biryani / rice / chapati / roti

I love pepper taste. One of my school friend's mum makes very nice Potato Pepper gravy. It tastes like korma but without coconut. Those days I don't like to eat coconut base food.. So friend's mum makes this korma she will send it for me. I have done this with potato but this can be done with mixed vegetable also. Try out this coconut less korma..
