  • Blanch onions and cool them to room temperature. Blend them along with tomatoes, cashews,
    or almonds, ginger, and garlic to a fine paste consistency and set aside.
  • Heat a tablespoon of vegetable oil in a pan and saute bay leaf and cloves.
  • Pour the onion-tomato puree and cook until 2 minutes.
  • Add red chili powder, coriander powder, and garam masala. Continue to saute on low heat until the mixture thickens. This will take about 10 minutes.

  • Sprinkle kasuri methi and Cover and remove from heat.
