Then add G & G paste, turmeric, curry leaves, salt, aloo, and fry untill soft and tender.If we want we can add chilli powder, but if we add chilli powder color changes slighly to red, so we can skip chilli powder and add green chillies.

Step 2.

Now add water and let it come to boil in the mean while take besan and dilute it with water without lumps. At this stage add tomatoes to boiling water, if we add tomatoes at this stage we can see it as chunks in besan.
