  • How to Make Onion in peanut sauce:

    1. Heat oil and add mustard seeds, red chilli and curry leaves. Keep frying till the seeds splutter.
    2. Add onions, chillies, garlic and ginger. Keep frying till the onion becomes pink and soft.
    3. Add tomato and fry till it becomes mushy. Add haldi jeera powder, salt with 500ml water. Leave the water to boil.
    4. Reduce heat, add groundnut powder and stir continuously to avoid lump formation. If the gravy is thick, you can add more water (hot water only) so it turns into sauce.

    6. Serve with chapatti or poori. You can also use as bread spread. They can be served for people suffering from diabetics too.
