My Notes :

1. Instead of chopped ginger you can add the ginger garlic paste.

2. Adding whole spices and garam masala is optional. Instead you can make temper with mustard and urad dal too.

3. You can also add bay leaf if you like it.

4. I did not use coriander powder since i used pepper at last.

5. Adding ghee and cashew is optinoal.
