    • This Curry is a kootu(Semi Gravy) kind of recipe, if  you want to make this as dry, then cook them to dry, if you want a gravy kind of curry , then add a cup of water and boil it, adjust the salt also.. 
    • Can add some dry red chilli in tempering, it gives a different flavour.
    • Adjust the Spice level in green chill..
