1. I have added roasted gram powder to enhance the flavour of the stir fry, instead you can add own masalas of your choice. Grated fresh coconut can also be added at the end.
2. To prepare roasted gram powder, take 2 tbsp of roasted gram/Putnalu in a mixer grinder. Add 2/3 red chillies along with salt. Grind them to a fine powder and add the powder to the stir fry before switching off the flame. Three or four garlic flakes can also be added.
