Note:

  1. Tomato puree can be replaced by grinding 2-3 ripe tomatoes in the mixie.
  2. If you don’t have fresh cream,just replace with normal full cream milk.
  3. Even evaporated milk can be added instead of fresh cream.

why to add star anise?

Hi deepa,
Staranise we add just to give a wonderful flavor. If you do not have star anise in hand just skip it and proceed with the next step
