7. When the curry is thick, add salt and the tempering to it.

Note: The reason for adding salt at the end of any curry is that only lesser salt is needed if added at the end. Only if vegetables are added, little salt for the vegetables is to be added so that it absorbs the salt. If you are not going to serve immediately, It is always best to add salt at the end of any curry even if adding vegetables.
