  • 3/4 teaspoon powdered turmeric

  • Keep the flame medium and heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pan over it. Fry the mustard seeds for a few seconds after adding the same to the pan. Add the onions and saute until they turn slightly pinkish in hue as they start to splutter. Now add chopped green chillies and the cinnamon. Fry for one-two minutes. Cook for more 10 minutes after adding the chopped tomatoes.
  • Add the turmeric powder, ginger, coriander powder and red chilli powder. Stir-fry all for a minute. Keep the cooking of the spices going on until the oil starts to separate. Add one cup of water and the tamarind paste. Simmer for a minute or two.
