  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 cups coconut milk

  • Wash and soak dhal for 20 minutes and grind in blender to make a puree. ( add some water if necessary) Then, add a Knorr Chicken Cube and blend well.
  • Mix in a small amount of chopped onion, garlic and curry leaves to this puree. Transfer it to a steel bowl or vessel that can be used for steaming. Cover with cling film, foil or a lunch sheet and steam till puree becomes stiff and firm to the touch.
  • Now, melt the Astra in another pan and add the remaining onion, garlic, green chili, rampé and curry leaves. Sauté till fragrant.
