I loved this! It's very mild and rich; I couldn't stop eating it. I made a couple of minor changes...I used cardamom powder rather than the whole seeds, I used sour cream instead of the heavy cream, and I didn't strain the tomato mixture. Also, I removed the bay leaf before processing the sauce. Absolutely delicious...thanks for posting this!
I submitted my previous comments before rating this recipe. I definitely give it five stars. Very tasty and so easy.
Must say that this was the easiest and yet the tastiest recipe I have tried. I used ginger-garlic paste instead of the chopped ginger; omitted the bay leaf, methi, cream and sugar and mom declared that it was great just on its own! Thanks for the great recipe!
