HOW TO THICKEN GRAVY? 

Common problem with the beginner's in cooking is fear.For example , if they see one recipes in blog/ youtube/ any social media they thought that  we have to use those ingredients, with the same procedure..

But I think, there is no protocol like that.we can alter the recipe to our sake. If you want to use cashew paste, but you don't have. At that time you can add coconut paste or any flour mix to it. But make sure you should never change  the main ingredient. 



On this basis , I answer to  doubt  HOW TO THICKEN GRAVY? 

10 easy way to thicken gravy:
  1. Coconut paste
  2. Groundnut/cashews
  3. Roasted  bengal gram
  4. Corn flour
  5. Gram flour
  6. Yogurt
  7. Boiled potato
  8. Cream
  9. Rice flour
  10. If nothing is there, you grind onion, tomato and fresh spices instead of adding as whole.
1.COCONUT PASTE
    If your gravy is little thin, you can add coconut paste.



2.GROUNDNUT/ CASHEWS
   If  you want your gravy to be thick and rich, grind groundnut/cashew  along with coconut .




3.ROASTED BENGAL GRAM
   If you want your gravy to more thick,for example as a side dish for chapati, poori , grind roasted bengal gram along with coconut.

4.CORN FLOUR
 Take 1 to 2 tbsp corn flour in a bowl. Add water little by little to make smooth paste.now add this paste in  gravy by stirring without taking hand.



5.GRAM FLOUR
   Take 1 to 2 tbsp gram flour in a bowl. Add water little by little to make smooth paste.now add this paste in  gravy by stirring continuously.



6.YOGURT
  This ingredient also thickens the gravy, but while adding curd reduce the tomato .



7.BOILED POTATO
  Add boiled potato into the gravy in last phase. Mash it well before use. Try to add boiled potato to gravy as side dish for chapati.

8.CREAM 
  Add cream at last to gravy. 



9.RICE FLOUR
  Instead of adding rice flour , try to add soaked raw rice, grind it well and then add it.if it not possible then add rice flour in water little by little to make smooth paste.now add this paste in  gravy by stirring continuously. 



10.BEST  METHOD
If you want to serve gravy in special occasion, skip add tomato , onion by chopping. Instead of this fry all ingredient and cool it. After it gets cool grind the ingredient along with coconut and groundnut/ cashew. This make your gravy to top level. 

I think these are all the possible way to thicken the gravy. If you have some tips, then comment me.
