Bhuna is the Indian equivalent of Stir frying and sauteing on medium high heat. The high heat helps meld the flavours of the spices into the vegetables or meat. Remember to keep a little water at the side whenever you try any bhuna dish to keep the dish from charring. Posting for a friend :) You can make this dish dry or add water towards the end to thin down the gravy. The recipe calls for Puri but I like it with Rotis/ Phulkas better as it is a lighter option to the deep-fried Puri .
