I made this recipe and it came out good. Thanks for sharing it. I have one doubt. Is the saunf 1 tbsp or 1 tsp? If it is 1tbsp, wont it make it too sweet and the curry will have that saunf smell? I used 1 tsp. Pls clarify

Hi, Thank you for trying out this recipe and posting your feedback. I had mentioned 1 tbsp saunf, it doesn't make the gravy sweet or increase its smell. I'm from Chettinad I generally use lots of saunf in our style of cooking. If you feel 1 tsp was apt for your taste you can do so. Thank you again.
