2. Add 2 tablespoons oil to the pan and heat over medium low heat.
Fry bay leaf, red chili, cardamom, cinnamon, and cloves for a few
seconds. Add onion and fry until richly browned but not burnt, 18 to
20 minutes, stirring constantly.
3. Stir in ginger, garlic, green chili, turmeric, cumin, and sugar.

curdle the sauce, detracting from its appearance and texture.) Stir

Food Tips of the Week
A few tips on healthy eating
If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.
Some low carbohydrate diet guidlines:
* Don't ignore the fiber
Decreasing the carbohydrates in your meals usually leads to reduction in fiber also. Check for low carbohydrate recipes that are rich in fiber to redress this.
* It is possible to make superb smoothies by using low carbohydrate yogurt.
Admittedly, you can't really describe it as cooking, but if you must have smoothies you can make them with low carb yogurt and your favorite fruit. Clearly, you will need to ensure you use fruit that is low in carbs and use all of the fruit as the fiber is beneficial.
