2. When the crackling of the mustard stops, add finely chopped onions, fry till they are pink and crisp.
3. Add finely chopped tomatoes and saute' till they are tender.
4. Add all the powders and salt and fry for a minute or two until the oil separates out.
5. Dissolve the tamarind paste in 200 or 250ml of water or as required for the gravy and add it to the masala and let it boil for about 7 minutes or so until the gravy thickens. A small piece of jaggery can be added at this stage to balance the taste of the gravy.
