I mostly make chicken curries with coconut in it, somedays i need a curry which has no coconut and calls for simple onions and tomato masala. I always thought that adding ground up paste in the curries make it more thick and curry like, rather than making everything watery. But this recipe is a exception, it gives you the thick consistency without making it watery. The flavours of this is much better too. The only thing is it need onions and tomatoes which i grind to make a smooth paste for thickness.
