Hi neethu,
Thanks for reminding me. I have updated the recipe. You need to add red chillies while grinding the coconut masala.

I have a complaint.I have read recipes and then some more.Most of the food bloggers write salt as per taste but unless you give a ballpark figure how can a novice cook, trial and error will not do as far as food is concerned.You can always add a adjust according to your taste.Thanks
