  • Now take onion paste ingredients (onion, ginger, garlic, green chili, cloves, cinnamon and cardamoms, and water) in a saucepan. Turn the heat on medium. Let it cook for 8-10 minutes or till the onions become soft. Let it cool down.
  • Now make three kinds of purees in the following order: First, make cashew paste. Then grind cooked onion into a fine paste and then grind roughly chopped tomatoes into a puree.
  • Heat the ghee in a pan on medium heat. Once hot, add prepared onion paste. Cook while stirring occasionally till it comes thick. It may take around 5-6 minutes.
  • Now add tomato puree and salt. Mix, cook till all the moisture evaporates and it becomes a thick paste. So stir in between and make sure that it is not sticking to the sides and bottom of the pan. If it is sputtering too much then you can partially cover the pan.
