  • Onion-1,sliced
  • Tomato-1
  • Green chilly-3 big

  • Coriander powder-1 tsp(optional)
  • Coconut milk thin-1 cup
  • coconut milk thick-1\2 up
  • Turmeric powder-1\4 tsp
  • salt to taste
  • Oil-2 tsp


1.chop everything and keep ready.I ground tomato and 2 green chilly to a fine paste.

2.Heat oil in a cooker,saute onion and green chilly till translucent,followed by ginger garlic paste.

3.After the raw smell vanishes add the ground paste,saute.then add in all powder with salt.Add the thin coconut milk and pressure cook for 2 whistle.
