Quick Babycorn Gravy

Babycorn is everybodys favourite. I use them a lot in my recipes. This one is a quick gravy that gets ready in almost 15 minutes so it gets very easy during the morning school rush when planning to make a kids favourite to school. I use pressure cooker to make this gravy and hence save a lot of time. Theres not a lot of spices in there ... just the regular ones but the gravy turns out wonderful every time

Silky soft gravy with small babycorn roundels cooked to perfection is what makes this gravy special. Love the bite from the babycorn when it together brings out the flavours induced from the gravy. Come on ... dont sweat out much and make this gravy. I am sure everyone will love it
