Tips

  1. The Curry tastes better if the Tomatoes are country ones with a sour taste.

Oil:

  1. I am making the wedding style recipe so the Oils are a little on the heavy side but you could reduce them if you like. But the curry actually tastes good with more Oil.

  2. Finally add some Ghee for a nice aroma. Those who do not like Ghee can skip it.

Cashew Nut Paste:

  1. Restaurant style curries have a thick gravy and the Curry should not be watery. That is why we should use Cashew Paste. In case, you do not have Cashew Paste, you could have half a cup of beaten Curd and cook the Curry on a low flame until it gets mixed totally into the Curry.
