Step 9

Add tomatoes, green chillly pieces and curry leaves and saute that until it turns to a nice roast mixture.

Step 10

Step 12

Mix everything well and cover it.

Step 13

Cover and cook on low heat for some more time for 15 - 20 mins.

Step 14

Mix in between and make sure it is not getting burnt and not sticking to the bottom of the pan so that the flavor of different ingrediants will blend together.
