once the butter melts, we’ll add a few cumin seeds.
After the cumin seeds, take onion paste. after which ginger garlic paste. After well sautéing the ginger garlic paste, we’ll take onions.
Now that the mixture has turned golden brown in shade, we will add the onions.

There should not be any water element left.
after we sauté the onions properly, we’re going to add in tomatoes.
Tomatoes have been boiled, peeled and chopped into small portions.
Upon including tomatoes, stir properly.
There’s a reason behind making any recipe. If we us the tomato puree uncooked, it has its own taste and smell. Similarly, if we cook the puree before using it, it would have a distinct smell and taste!
Now that the oil has started separating, it’s time to add spices. So let’s add in coriander and cumin seeds powder, a pinch of turmeric and chilly powder to taste.
Now stir well. Turn the gas on a low flame.
