When the red chillies start changing color, add the onions and garlic followed by tamarind broken into smaller pieces and fry till they turn golden brown. Remove from heat and let it cool.

Step 4

Once everything is cold, grind the onion mixture along with peanuts and salt to a fine paste adding enough water.

Heat oil in a wok again and add the mustard seeds.
