Masaal – Side dish for Chappathi and Puri

Masaal is a very good side dish for and Chappathi and puri. It is a famous South-Indian gravy. The restaurants in Tamilnadu will add tomatoes in the masaal and it gives a different taste to it. But my amma and Paati makes it without tomatoes and it is a hit in our family. My brother and I love it a lot. The masaal consistency for Chappathi and puri is slightly watery and the for Masaal Dosai it is thick.
