I am a novice. My wife is away and I had a “kothi” for kadala curry, the type you get in the tea shops. This recipe came out well in spite of the novice cook – thanks..

I is good. I didn`t use turmeric powder when I boil Kadala. I add it with other powders. Also I added crushed garlic and ginger pieces right before I add Onions. It came out really goood. ( I didn`t add garam masala at the end)GREAT WITH PUTTE!!

Very tasty….
tip: after cooking the kadala in the pressure-cooker, smash some of it and then continue the cooking. that way u can make the gravy more tasty and thick…
