Tip#5: Make the Exact Restaurant Style gravy at Home!!


The perfect combination of spices and cream in a gravy makes it taste like the ones made in restaurants. Everyone wants to make restaurant style gravies at home and impress their family members. Here are few Smart Samayal Tips you can follow..





1. Always use ghee or vanaspathi instead of oil which gives a good flavour. If oil alone is used it does not get separated easily from the ground mixture.

2. Fry the ground masala in reduced flame so that it retains its colour and taste.

3. Little plain sugar or caramelised sugar enhances the taste of the gravy.

4. Always add red ripe tomatoes for gravy.Discard the yellow portion.

5. Sprinle few kasuri methi leaves (dry fenugreek leaves) while frying the masala. It gives a nice aroma and taste to the gravy.

6. Try and use Kashmiri chilli powder instead of normal chilli powder . It gives a rich colour to the gravy.

7. While using ginger and garlic paste in curries always use garlic 60% and ginger 40% as ginger is very strong. It may make your dish pungent.

8. Soak few cashews in warm milk , grind and add. It gives a glazy texture and thickness to the gravy.

9. In vegetable gravy you can add coconut milk to get Kerala style kurma taste.

10. While serving add little fresh cream to give a restaurant style look.
