1. Don't add garlic paste in this recipe. Always add coarsely grinder or chopped garlic. 

2. Don't pressure cooker cluster beans for longer time. Blanching is also good alternative for boiling.

3. Don't cook cluster beans in masala for longer as that result in sour taste.

4. Dry anar Dana seeds (dry pomegranate seeds) can also added in this gravy for a tangy flavour.
