Brown Gravy

There are five basic types of gravy. Brown gravy, Red gravy, White gravy, Yellow gravy, Makhni gravy. Today I am sharing the recipe of brown gravy. This brown gravy is used in lot of restaurant style dishes like balti Chicken, balti paneer, Chicken Lababdar, Paneer lababdar etc. I used this brown gravy to prepare Balti Chicken.

You will need Mawa for this recipe. I have used Homemade Instant Mawa. The ratio of onion and tomato is 2:1. The quantity of onion will be twice the quantity of tomatoes.
