    Wow!
    Shailaja garu,
    What a coincidence, I was thinking of cooking (kohinoor anda) boiled eggs in the evening. No problem, to day evening I am going to make this recipe. Just I am checking my emails, after I that will go for a walk, it so cold in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Thank you so much for every thing. J

  • lata raman

    i am grateful to your kitchen dear Sailu. :))

  • mangla

    Great work,Sailu!i would like to see recipies with tamarimd leaf powder.

  • Akshita

    I tried it just now, and it did not taste good, what could be the reason ……it is very bitter in taste ………dont know how would my husband react :(

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      Akshita, poppy seeds tend to taste bitter when not cooked properly. You need to roast the poppy seeds enough till light red and not over roast them.

      • Akshita

        Dear Sailu

        Thanks for being very prompt in replying. I have followed the instructions, and have not over roasted. How much does 2 cup measure? I have added 240 ml- 1 cup of water. I have added two cups. Thank you very much.

        Does 1 cup of solid measure same as 1 cup of liquid.

        Can you please suggest a good grinder that I can buy in perth ?

        Thanks

        Akshita

  • Usha

    No Onions? I think one finely chopped onion would be good. And about it being bitter – may be Akshita put too much menthi powder?

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      There is no need for onion at all as there will be enough gravy. Sometimes poppy seeds when left unused for a long period of time yield a bitter flavor. Also they need to be roasted well.

  • Meg

    Really good recipes!! I understand poppy seeds are used as a thickening agent apart from the flavour too? for this curry is there anything else i can use instead of poppy seeds? we dont get it here… :(

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      You can use cashew nuts or melon seeds.

  • Ruchi

    How did get the yellow color in the curry as there is no turmeric in ur recipe. I cooked it it was lil dark but not yellow

    • http://sailusfood.com Sailu

      I used home made masala chili powder which has turmeric in it.

    Really fantastic its easy to prepare… thanks a lot sailu

    I have a question: “2 1/2 tbsps khus khus/gasagasalu/poppy seeds, roasted and ground to a paste by adding few tbsps water.”
    How do you accomplish this?

    • Anonymous

      I know grinding khus khus is a difficult task. The Indian mixer grinder like Preeti come with a small jar which is useful to grind small quantities. If are having difficulty, add 1-2 tbsps grated coconut and few tbsps water. When you add too much water, the seeds will not grind well. Add little by little as your grind. Hope this helps.

        i tried this receipe today, as i had tried this curry by one of our telugu friend. But my gravy became very watery. Did not become thick as it looks like in the photo above.
