  • Add ginger-garlic paste and continue to fry till the raw smell goes and the oil comes to the surface.
  • Add chilli powder, cumin powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and continue frying using water a little at a time to fry the masala so that it does not burn.
  • Fry the masala nicely till the oil seeps to the surface.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and continue frying till tomatoes are soft and mushy.
  • Add the tamarind pulp and let it bubble for 2-3 minutes till the raw smell of tamarind is gone.
