A thick, rich and creamy gravy which goes well with roti’s and steamed rice too. What I love the most about this dish is the tangy flavour from the yoghurt πŸ™‚ Its a medium spiced gravy, and sooo very delicious, you cannot resist from eating more. I came across this recipe in “Vah re Vah” website. I did some modification as per my taste. My husband thoroughly enjoyed it. The secret part of the recipe is the boiled onion paste, Thanks to my dear friend Sushma Mallya for the tip. It definitely takes the gravy to the next level πŸ™‚

  • Onions – 3
  • Cashewnuts – 8
  • Yoghurt – 1 cup
  • Coriander powder – 1 tbsp

  • Cardamom – 3
  • Cloves – 3
