  • If you over cook the pitor, it will be difficult to spread.
  • You have to be real quick while spreading, as you have to while its hot, otherwise it will get set in to pan only.
  • Be very careful and use right spatula while spreading pitor, as it might burn your fingers. 
  • Keep the gravy stirring after adding tomato and curd puree until a first boil, otherwise it may curdle.
  • You may also garnish with some chopped coriander leaves.
  • Adjust the spices as per your taste and tolerance.
