gravy recipeSuggestions:

  • We can also make gravy without mixing the chickpea flour but if we mix curd to the chickpea flour first then it prevents the curd from coagulating and also gravy gets little dense.
  • You can also prepare tempering with the green chilies and then add them to the curd gravy.
  • Keep note that salt is added in the end while making curd gravy with curd when the gravy starts simmering. If we add salt initially then the curd can coagulate.
  • We used poppy seeds and cashews paste but you can also use melon seeds paste. Or prepare gravy alone with the melon seeds paste or cashew paste or poppy seeds paste.
  • You can also mix all these three dry fruits for making the gravy as well.
