  2. Heat oil in a pan, splutter mustard seeds, fennel seeds, green chili, and curry leaves. Next add onion and sauté until color changes now add ginger garlic paste and half cilantro, sauté until raw smell goes.
  3. In this stage add tomatoes and cook until mushy. Add all dry masala and salt cook for another 2 minutes.
