  8. Add tomatoes and cook for another 3-4 mins.
  9. Add one glass of water and bring to a boil.Then simmer and cook covered for 15-20mts.

This is my m-law recipe.She uses tamarind instead of tomatoes.Some how i am not comfortable with tamarind so i replaced it with tomatoes.We don't get poppy seeds here so i substituted with cashew nuts.
