Adding yogurt to a dish where tomatoes are added will increase the sourness. Whipped cream is enough or you can add little milk.
I was adding garam masala before to this I have to try with pav bhaji masala.

@Anonymous,

Adding whipped cream/milk to the curry is already mentioned in the recipe!!
Adding 1 tsp of Yogurt will not increase the sourness.. instead enhances the taste...
