    • Make ginger garlic paste.

    • Add onion paste and fry in oil.
    • Mix one teaspoon of ginger garlic paste into the onion paste.

    • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves.

    Notes

    Tips/Notes: 1) Make this gravy with any one or two of the veggies mentioned. In any way it tastes great. 2) Adding cashew paste gives thickness to the gravy. It can be replaced with coconut milk or fresh cream. Or simply mix a tsp of dry rice flour with some water and pour into the gravy. Mix well and gravy becomes thick. 3) Fresh milk cream can be prepared instantly at home. Store malai/top layer of freshly boiled milk every day in a container and grind a tbsp of it and fresh cream is ready to use.
