Add the ground masala paste, enough water and salt to taste and simmer in low fire.
Season with fried small onions, dried chillies and curry leaves.
:- Serve with rice.
:- Add 4 - 5 pepper corns to masala if using fish.
*For vegetables, you can use either small onions only, or brinjal/eggplant or small onion and lady`s finger or mixed veg like tomato, carrot, kovakka, drumsticks or dried fish like nettholi and small onion or fresh prawns and onion. or mushroom and onion what ever ingredients you use preparation method is almost the same. I have tried with almost all of those combinations and always it turned out tasty.
