I liked this recipe very much. I had a question though – since there are no onions they quantity of the gravy is less. How do I make more gravy? You can`t simply add more water as that will make it very thin and dilute the taste.

The curry is very good. But just a tip from my side, it would taste even better if the corriander powder, chillie powder and all these powders where to be lightly broiled in a Khadai and then continue as per the recipie states. Well its just a small tip that i`ve tried `n it did come out well.
