Hi friends i am madhumitha, i tried this recipe, it was really delicious, i used big onions , and instead of coconutmilk i used coconut powder mixed with water, so i had a thick gravy and also those who want it more spicy can add more no of greenchillies or chilly paste.. anyway it was really worth trying....Thanks
