  5. Now heat butter in a pan add steamed veggies. Saute for few seconds. Now add the ground onion tomato mixture and mix well. I added 1/2 cup water because the gravy was very thick. Allow the mixture to boil for a minute.
  6. Now to the boiling mixture crush and add kasuri methi, sugar and milk/ cream. Mix well and allow the mixture to boil for a minute then put off the flame. Adding cream makes the gravy more rich in taste. Finally add butter and serve it with naan, jeera, rice, kulcha, phulka.
