Let it boil & allow Tomato’s to cook down .

If you are adding Shrimp this is the time you should add .

Shrimp will take only 2-3min to cook.

Allow all the water to evaporate, otherwise You will end up with a watery gravy.

Carefully add the Coconut paste & if needed add some Water according to the consistency.

Let it heat up well, don’t allow the gravy to boil otherwise it will curdle.

Heat a small pan & add Coconut Oil.

When Oil is really hot add Mustard Seed & allow it to pop.

Then add Cumin Seeds, Red Chillies & Curry Leaves.

Saute for few min & pour it on top of Tomato Gravy.
