Hi actually sindhi curry is made totally differently, curry means it should be boiling, and all vegetables are dropped in the curry slowly in a span of 10-15 minutes, i will share with you receipe of sindhi curry taught to me by my mother in law, firstly besan is roasted in oil for nearly 25-30 minutes on simmer gas, then jeera, methi Dana n hing and haldi n red chili powder is added, then when besan has become nicely roasted, then water is added as per the quantity of besan eg.if besan is around 250 gm water is around 1.5 litres , first thing suran is added, after 10-15 minutes gavar n aloo is added, veg which take time to cook are added in beginning, then after 15 minutes u can add lauki/baigan/drumstick then after 10-15 minutes add tomato mirchi adrak paste along with saute/fried bhindi and few kolam ke Phul, as the curry cooks flavour of vegetables comes, color becomes nice and it also thickens when say after nearly 1 hour 15 minutes curry will leave oil indicating it is ready then add soaked imli water say 1 katori and serve hot with white rice

   When you gravy is cooking or its hot it seems watery, when gravy will start cooling down it will gradually thicken. But if you feel its too watery you can add 1 tbsp of Besan/Bengal gram flour.
