1.
Take a pan and heat some oil in it. Once it’s hot, add solid spices – bay leaves, black cardamom, black peppercorns to the pan and stir until they become aromatic and change colour to brown.
2.
Now add cumin seeds, and cook until they begin to splutter. Add ginger-garlic paste and cook until it loses its rawness.
3.
Reduce the flame to medium-low and add chopped onions to the pan. Cook until it’s transparent. Now add chopped tomatoes and mix well. Cover the lid of the pan so that all the ingredients blend well and the tomatoes are mushy.
