You are right shaheen,the original recipe doesn't mention tadka at all.It starts from frying onion, but i love mustard, so i will add it to almost everything i make..:))

I wonder how you got liquid gravy without adding water or coconut milk

Hi Anon,
Sorry i didn't mention water.There is no exact amount of water to add to this curry.You can add abt 1/2 cup to get this consistency as the grounded coconut paste will have some liquid as well.
