Once onion & garlic sauted well, add 2 finely chopped tomatoes & saute till it gets smashed. Once its sauted well, add 1 tbsp homemade masala powder, 1/2 tsp red chilli powder & 1/4 tsp turmeric powder & saute till raw smell disappears. As we have added homemade masala powder no need to add coriander powder or cumin powder separately Once the masala raw smell disappears, add the tomato Puree prepared earlier. Also add the required water for gravy, mix well & allow it to boil. You can add bit more water also as the curry will get thicker after adding coconut puree later. In the mean time prepare Coconut puree. Take 1 piece of coconut and chop into fine pieces,add 1/2 tsp Pepper. Grind it to make puree by adding little amount of water.
