To make the gravy rich creamy and thick I have used cashew nuts, almond, poppy seeds and coconut. These ingredients also made the curry super tasty. Sauteed and ground onion garlic tomato and whole spices will make your curry smooth and perfectly creamy. Aromatic whole and powder spices and Kewra water made the curry extremely flavorful.
