    • Soon you will notice the skin peeling off from the tomatoes. Using a slotted spoon remove tomatoes from hot water and give them a cold bath by dropping in cold water. This will speed up the peeling process.

    • I prefer to cook garam masala powder along with my gravy, instead of adding it at the last minute. This way it releases more flavor and adds heat to the gravy.
