Boiling the meal maker:

  • Squeeze out the water from the chunks.
  • Set them aside.

Making of tomato puree:

  • Add 3 chopped tomatoes in a blender, add some salt, red chilli powder and puree them finely.

Making of the curry:

  • Take a wok, add oil and heat it.
  • Add the cinnamon stick, bay leaf, cloves and saute for for few seconds.
  • Add the sliced onions and let them cook until they turn slight brown in color.
  • Add ginger garlic paste and saute for few seconds.
  • Add the tomato puree into it.
  • Add dry spices such as salt, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala powder.

Notes

  • In this recipe, I have used sliced onions, but one can also make a paste of boiled onions and add  in place of sliced onions.
  • If using onion paste, then the onion paste have to be sauteed for 2-3 minutes on low flame before adding ginger garlic paste.
  • Rest of the procedure can be followed the same way as mentioned.
