This curry tastes just as the traditional one but the shallots enhance its taste. If you want a fried consistency, keep stirring until the gravy is fully evaporated. Then it would be much tastier. We had it with Roti, and everyone liked it. It was a super hit… 
You also try and let me know in the comments. I would love to hear how it went for you.. 
Will come back with another recipe. 
Till then,
Lots of Love,
