The consistency of curry depends upon your preference…if you like more gravy type,add more hot water.
If you like more thick type,add less water and more besan batter.
The thick gravy well goes with puri,chapathi.
Thin gravy well goes with upma,vada…
If you feel the gravy is more thick after some time,add more hot water and give it a boil.
Try to cook the veggies on its own water and in low flame and cover the pan also,then it is more flavourful.
In this way it is cooked faster and less gas energy consumed.
Add hot water to enhance the flavour.
If you are making for any function,omit onion and garlic,use sendha namak instead of salt.
