My Tip:

Garnish with chopped corianders. Cover n let it sit for two to three mins before serving hot with bhakhri, roti, parantha, naan n best personally I find delicious with rotla( Gujarati pan cake). During festivals celebration or party, add strands of saffron pre soaked in warm milk and mix well.
