My Notes:

  • If you prefer you can add a tsp of gram flour to make the masal thick.
  • You can also add a tsp of finely chopped ginger while tempering. It not only enhances the flavour it also helps for digestion and gastric issues.
  • You can skip tomato and add veggies like peas, carrot etc.
  • Adjust water quantity according to the thickness of the curry.
