Simply amazing... My husband has categorized this as one of the few dishes he can have anytime of the day and any number of times.....

Ok.. I now have cooked it last night however it was average and I figured out why. I believe this an awesome recipe however the mistake I had done is not to fry onion paste long enough. People, onion paste really needed to be fired as VKN suggested: till golden brown.

this time I have nailed it. Definitely had to brown the onion mix and ensure that spices are added before the tomato as suggested. Do fry the spice with the onion mix adding bits of water at a time. Awesome recipe.

Yes, please, my voice to the chorus: How many tomatoes?? It's been missed out in your list of ingredients

First of all, Thanks to VKN for this gr8 recipe, instaed of Garam masala I added Chicken masala and it tasted good.

I added half a tomato and it tasted good... Tomatoes tend to make food tangy, so its up to you how much you add... :)

Hi just tried out this recipe and added all the ingredients, but the gravy turned out bitter. Am i missing something.

dart, perhaps you did not fry the onion paste long enough.

For those who wanted to know the number of tomatoes to be used, I tried this recipe with 2 medium firm tomatoes (not too ripe).

The dish turned out superb. Kids kept asking for more. I plan to make it again in a couple of days.
Thank you
