unlike any other north indian gravy recipes, shahi bhindi curry is prepared by boiling tomato and onion with ginger and garlic. traditionally the indian curries are prepared by sauteing tomato and onions with ghee or oil and later grounding it to fine thick paste. basically onion and tomato sauce gravy forms the base of most of our curries. however with shahi recipes, the tomato and onion is boiled in water, before grounding them to thick sauce. boiling would help to gain the rich yellow color to gravy as compared to the other curries with dark red color. also the shahi curry base would have lot of almonds and cashews to make it more creamy and rich.
