4. Using a blender, blend the sauteed mixture till you get a paste.
5. In the same skillet add some more oil and roast the flour. Add a little bit of water, and stir at medium heat. Make sure there are no lumps formed.
6. Add the tomato puree, bay leaves, garam masala, and let it simmer. At this point add the blended gravy to this mixture. Stir in red chili powder as well.
7. Add sugar to balance the flavors. Cover and simmer for a while the gravy changes color slightly and the flavors set in.

8. This curry gravy can be served as a gravy for any Indian side dish preparation such as Shahi paneer, Mutter paneer, Malai kofta or any other similar dishes.

If using cream you can avoid flour. Pour cream into the gravy in the fast few minutes of cooking.
