The popular Mussalam gravy is not only easy to prepare but also tastes great. It is a combination of basic spices and fried brinjal pieces. This red gravy can be combined with any vegetable of your choice. If you do not have fresh tomato purée, you can use a smaller quantity of canned purée that has been diluted with water.
