My Notes:

  • The original recipe called for poppy seeds also to be roasted and ground but I did'nt add any.
  • The amount of green ,red chillies and peppercorns can be altered as per need.
  • I added chilly powder for color sake and reduced the amount of peppercorns.
  • This gravy is of apt spiciness for our taste buds.
