  4. It's time to add water as per consistency required. Preferred consistency for sorak is medium.
  5. Allow the curry to simmer for 2 to 3 mins. Later add green chilies, kokam and salt as per taste.
  6. Once the curry starts bubbling switch off the gas. Garnish with few coriander leaves. Serve sorak hot with rice Or pao.
Notes
1. If you don't have dry kashmiri chilies the use any dry red chili which gives deep red color and isn't spicy.
2. If kokum isn't available then replace with 1 tbsp tamarind pulp.
3. Also if fresh grated coconut isn't available. Soak desiccated coconut in hot water. Grind them and then your coconut is ready to be used in sorak.
4. If you like your curry spicy then add more red chilies Or make the gravy thick.
5. This is vegetarian version however if you want you could add prawns Or fish head to the curry which will give a great taste and flavor to the curry.
