as i was explaining earlier, the gravy sauce for this recipe is rich and creamy version. perhaps you can also make it a spicy and hot gravy sauce. but the combination of corn and capsicum requires a rich and lighter version. well, to be honest, it is not mandatory but i personally feel the combination of corn and capsicum yields a sweet and crunchy texture which goes with a creamy sauce. yet contrary to it, some may argue that the vegetables would give sweetness to the curry. and hence a spicy gravy would result in a sweet and spicy taste. so at the end of the day, it is completely up to your taste buds. i personally like this combination but it is purely open-ended.
