A coarse powder of coriander seeds and red chillies is what gives the Kadai Gravy its exclusive flavour and special texture.

This richly-textured gravy is tomato-based, and has a tangy and spicy flavour with sharp hints of fenugreek.

You can prepare a large batch of this gravy and deep-freeze it, so you can quickly whip up tongue-tickling Kadhai -style accompaniments like Kadhai Vegetables and Kadai Paneer Subzi whenever you want.

This looks yummy, eager to try it. Can we substitute dhania powder and kashmiri red chilli powder instead of the whole spices?
