  • Whisked curd and added to the pan make sure that the pan is not too hot if you put curd in the very hot pan it will split (add little water if the yogurt is too thick)
  • Turn on the heat in lo flame
  • Keep stirring the curd for about 2 to 3 minutes
  • Turn the heat off and add fresh green Coriander
Things To Consider

Boil the potatoes well because we won’t be allowing any cooking time for the potatoes with the curd.

You can also saute the potatoes with little Turmeric and Salt before adding the Gravy

To avoid splitting of Curd bring down the temperature of the pan before adding the curd. If you still can’t get it right you may turn the heat off, wait for 5 minutes and then add the Yogurt. Simmer for 5 minutes while continuously stirring and you shall be done.
