Tastes awesome 🙂
1)I used store brought Contadina(its a brand name) tomato paste (Didn’t try with fresh puree).
2) I kept some of puree aside as I need only remaining paste, but if you like more tangy flavour then add all of it.
2) I used Chaokoh Coconut milk which is the best in taste.
3)Thai green curry paste, and butter chicken masala is totally optional.
4)Jaggery powder gives a nice sweet flavour, which makes saar nice tangy and sweet in taste.
5) Grounded peaunts gives a crunchy test, but still you can skip if you want.
