Indian curries are relished predominantly across the world for their blend of a handful of Indian spices, including cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, and garam masala.
The look and color typically play a crucial role. Before you take a taste of the curry, what entices you about a curried dish is the look and color of the gravy. A too light in color Indian curries doesn’t look appetizing enough.
No worries! Here’s a trick to easily fix the color of your vegetarian or non-vegetarian curry with some black tea leaves:
1. Take some water in a deep-bottomed pan and add some black tea leaves to it.
2. Boil the water till it attains a black color.
3. Add this water to your curry while cooking to get that perfect deep brown tinge.
4. Alternatively, you can toss some tea bags with their strings cut off to your curry while simmering it and remove them after some time.
5.Another way of deepening the color of your curry is to secure some tea leaves inside a tiny, thin muslin cloth and toss this tiny bag of tea leaves in your curry. Fish this tiny bag out, when you have achieved the desired color.
