You are right Pari..This dish is supposed to be a hot spicy dish..But I didnt make it that hot.Only 3 redchillies..

Thanx a lot somoo!!

Exactly my thought when i tasted this dish,Vrindha..it was a cross b/w veg kuruma and northindian gravy :)

Thanx Mye..I used garam masala as per Tarla's recipe..But when i googled I found that for kolhapuri masala powder there are soo many spices which are dry roasted and ground into a fine powder
