  28. hi,
    I tried this recipe today with one difference. I sauted ginger , garlic , onion and tomato with cardamom and cloves and then had ground the paste. I basically don't like onion raw smell at all so this way it was taken care of nicely. The cardamom gave really nice smell to the dish. Loved it!!

    Thanks for sharing in detailed way.
