take some oil in this i’m going to add onions after sauteeing it little bit just add some salt add ginger-garlic paste if take 1 kg of onions, we’re going to add 1 kg of tomatoes, add
turmeric, add chilli powder, coriander powder, i have taken 1 kg of onion 1 kg
of tomatoes for that one cup of chili powder, one couple of coriander powder,
just one tablespoon of cumin powder don’t need to add any water do not worry the moisture that is coming from these
onions and tomatoes will be good enough to create a steam and pressure so that
the all of these ingredients will be nicely cooked; put the lid on, we’re going
to cook this for at least 15 to 20 minutes this may give around six to seven whistles , do not worry you know put it on a little slow flame then high flame and this will become a fantastic gravy in no time and now look at this this is a fantastic
method foolproof method and all the masalas everything will be cooked nicely there is no chance of you know burning
any side and the flavors are fantastic and now you can put this gravy in a
small containers and put it in the refrigerator and use whenever you want
i’m just going to add some of this onion tomato gravy into a pan one teaspoon of a poppy seed or of
cashew paste into this you know you can also add the coconut or
whatever you want you can add in this and add water you do not have too much water because
i’m going to make chicken curry today and the chicken will also ooze out lot of you know moisture just add pieces of chicken into this maybe i need to add a little more of water that should be good now you’re going to put the lid on and let it cook for around 15 minutes you can add any combination of cashew nut and coconut or poppy seed and coconut or anything and you can just add
the chicken and let it cook for 15 minutes and your chicken will be ready
and the gravy will taste fantastic after on 15 minutes of cooking, sauce is
also slightly thickened out and look at this chicken perfectly cooked now maybe I need to check the salt I
need to add some salt in this that should be good and because we did
not add any garam masala powder, I’m just going to add very little not too much just very little of garam masala just in the end will give a very nice flavor to this chicken and also some mint leaves finely chopped that also will give a nice flavor and some chopped coriander to finish it off just mix all of this haha this is wow you know look at this even if you
are a student or a bachelor whatever you can put this on the stove and just
forget it for 15 minutes and you have your fantastic chicken curry you know dear friends it is very easy to

  5. Irishgirl41 says:

    I don't own a pressure cooker or have the room for one in my dorm, can this be done in a regular heavy bottom pot with the lid? and if so how long will it take to cook properly? Can you do a version without preparing the Onion Tomato Gravy in the pressure cooker?

  6. Pupruishang Shadang says:

  81. intenseevils says:

    Bachelors don't always have fridges. Its best to keep the gravy mix uncooked and preserve it with vinegar or some acidic sauce. salt is also good but then you'll have to dilute the curry a lot.

    Gravy is a sauce often made from the juices of meats that run naturally during cooking and thickened with wheat flour or cornstarch for added texture.
