- Salt and heat Test: Do a final salt and heat test and add salt or black pepper as per your liking.
- Bring the flame to high and let it come to a nice boil.
- If you have lemon just give the mixture one tiny squeeze if not that's ok too.
- As soon as you see entire gravy boiling close the pot with the lid and reduce the flame to simmer(between medium and sim) for 15 mins. Give it a couple of stirs in between the 15 mins to make sure the bottom doesn't burn and put the lid back on.
- Bring to a high flame and boil it for 5 more mins till the water reduces to 60% of its initial level and the gravy gets a bit thick.
- Once thick transfer to a bowl
- Add 2 tbsp oil to frying pan
- Add 1/2 onion(finely chopped) and curry leaves(optional) to the frying pan
- Once the onion turns brown add 1 tsp of the one curry masala
