Chef Tips:

  • To paste cashew nuts or magaj soak them in hot water for like 10 min then blend them using little water, we need a thick paste
  • To make it little spicy if you like spicy food add paste of green chilly because we can’t add red chilly powder else colour will change to red
  • Many people ask me regarding the portion of the food is less, just want to tell them it’s only the presentation, you can always serve a bowl full of gravy with Indian breads on the side
  • Cream you can add more if you want to add.
