Hi, I am currently cooking this dish. It really looks yummy. I feel it is a great deal to give kids healthy food like this one. But, I wonder when did you added the salt?

I make this curry very often. But I put 2 spoons of groundnut powder and seasemseed powder. Some times i even add cashew powder. I dry fry both and make powder put at very of the currry. My twin girls loves it. Nice way to give nut to kids. Chef said he makes it with half & half sometime , try with coconut milk also taste too good.
