Recipe Notes The whole spices used in the recipe are optional, but they are highly recommended. Paprika or Kashmiri red chilli powder has a mild flavour and is not too spicy. This allows you to add more for that deep colour. However, if you prefer your dishes spicy, you can add red chilli powder to enhance the spicy flavour of the dish. To give the gravy more thickness and texture, you could grind the onion and tomatoes once they are cooked well with the spices.
